I just found out I might have a 5-year-old son. I once had a short relationship with a girl who told me she was not married. She got pregnant and said the baby was mine. I asked for a DNA test, but she refused because she didn’t want to admit she had cheated on her husband. Now they’re getting divorced, and she has asked me to prove my paternity so her husband will not get custody. She also said she wants me in the kid’s life. How do I react? Do I drop everything to be a father to this child – halfway across the country – who has had a different father for five years?

Amniocentesis is the first process that aims to gather the fluid samples surrounding the womb. The second process is known by the name of CVS or Chronic Villus Sampling. Here, the cells are taken from placenta surface. Both CVS and Amniocentesis are performed with the help of ultrasound. These two processes aim to take out a small tissue sample from the exterior portion of the sac where the baby gradually develops.
A security guard saw the same woman leaving the hospital at 3:30 a.m. The guard did not see a baby, but police theorized she could have concealed a baby under her smock. Calina’s disappearance was the only case of a child kidnapped from a New York hospital.
Confidentiality is a big concern when considering a dna test. You can get this with a home test because only those you tell about it will even know you had the test done. This can help you to protect any relationships that may be adversely affected should they find out a at-home dna test was ever needed. For example if you want to make sure your husband is the father of your child because you had an affair early in the pregnancy you likely don’t want to disclose that information to him.
Send in samples: Once the swabbing is completed, send in the samples to the company’s lab. Most companies will include a self addressed envelope for your convenience and you simply have to affix postage. Then you simply have to play the waiting game.
After placing the samples inside the tubes, the entire home DNA test kits should be sent back to the testing company to perform the DNA analysis. It should be noted that the kits should be sent and received by the testing company within 5 days after the samples were collected. If it won’t make it on time, the accuracy and viability of the test cannot be guaranteed. The sooner the home DNA test kits are sent back, the better. Results for the test usually arrive at your doorsteps in two or three week’s time.
