A subject that was only touched on in extreme cases and often avoided so as not to cause scandals, DNA testing has been increasingly looking for undecided parents about the paternity of babies. Many of the cases that turn to DNA are those who have had a sexual relationship outside of their marriages or even with people who had no relationship at all, except for a case of a night or two.
There is also the case of doubt arising from the mother, even though many claim that it is impossible for a woman not to know who the father of her child is, some end up having sex with two or more partners on the same day, on consecutive days or even periods very short where it is impossible to be sure of the correct conception date . Some calculations about the fertile dayand ovulation can help to get an idea, but only through the DNA exam you will be sure 100% safe. DNA testing can be performed by collecting blood from involved family members, through hair strands and even saliva. The DNA that will be evaluated and that will diagnose the family connection can be found in the nucleus of any cell in the body, with the exception of red blood cells that have no nucleus. In the rest, the same cells found in white blood cells are located in the skin, hair, urine, muscles and even in the bones and are developed right at the moment of conception and can never and for any reason undergo changes throughout life.
Since 1950, DNA testing has been studied with caution and since that time it has been proven that through DNA, genes are constituted and prove family connection. However, this was a very expensive test and did not offer easy access to the general population, who had to carry this doubt for many years, generating so many internal conflicts, especially with the child in question. But in the last decade there has been a very large growth of laboratories specialized in DNA, which offer the exam with more accessible values and can be found from R $ 300.00 and depending on the number of people participating in the exam, the amount can be changed .
Where to Perform the DNA Exam?
DNA testing can also be performed free of chargethrough some colleges that offer this type of service to the poorest population or even through a court order, where part of those interested in the result of a paternity investigation judicially request that the exam be carried out to resolve the doubt. This last option is currently the most sought after, but the longest way to solve the problem. Since we know that the agility of Brazilian justice does not collaborate much with the population. The father or mother interested in solving the question of paternity can seek the support of the public defender of his city and request through a judge that the examination be carried out. Even if one of the parties is not complicit in the examination, the judge may determine and demand that the examination be carried out in order to resolve the doubts of the requesting party.
DNA testing is the safest way today and offers 99.9% accuracy in the result. The exam can also be performed privately, being carried out in several laboratories where part of those involved can search and request the scheduling for material collection. The cost of the exam varies from laboratory, but costs between R $ 300.00 and R $ 1,000.00 and the result is usually reported within 24 hours.
