This type of test is very helpful in determining whether two males are related through a father’s line of genetics.
The Y-chromosome, which is only found in males, passes down unchanged from father to son. Any male who has a male ancestor in common will have the same Y-chromosome. This applies to cousins, nephews, uncles, a grandfather or any other man in the family.
A paternity test of the alleged father is the first type to start with in determining the parentage of a child. But in some situations, that’s not possible; the person might be unable or unwilling to have the test done. This is when the Y-chromosome test is very valuable. Anyone from the alleged father’s cousin to nephew to grandfather and more can be tested, and the results will reveal whether the two are biologically related.
Our price for non-legal Y-Chromosome testing for one person is $425. Results are usually available two to five business days after DNA collection.
