Inheritance & Estate DNA Testing

In a perfect world, a will is in place when a loved one dies. This document lays out who inherits estate assets. However, when there hasn’t been one drawn up, things can get complicated. It becomes the job of the State to determine inheritance. One of the primary determining factors is biological relationship. Here at Test Smartly Labs, we provide court-admissible results you can count on.

High Profile Example

Family feuds arise in cases of inheritance. While you may not be able to think of anyone you know who’s faced this age-old dilemma, consider the recent case of 61-year-old tarot card reader Pilar Abel. She claimed to have rights to the vast estate of prominent Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali, who died in 1989. It was her claim that Dali had an affair with her mother, but courts were able to definitively unsubstantiate her claims using inheritance DNA testing.

Solid Results: No Questions Asked

In September 1984, University of Leicester geneticist Dr. Alec Jeffreys was studying hereditary disease. During his research, he discovered that every individual has a unique DNA fingerprint. While variables sometimes exist when it comes to drug testing, DNA results are highly-accurate and can provide solid results without lingering doubts. Just some of the biological relationships we can establish include:

  • Paternity
  • Maternity
  • Siblingship
  • Grandparentage
