The paternity test for law firms is one of the services offered by Federalpol. It is carried out by the forensic biologists of the investigation agency and the consultants of the Tribunal from the Carabinieri scientific investigation departments . These are checks aimed at verifying the actual degree of relationship between two or more subjects. We are therefore talking about paternity tests for legal use, which has a substantial difference with the informative paternity test.
The legal value of the paternity test is the heart of the matter. It means that the subjects undergoing the examination must be identified (through official documents such as an identity card) and granting any authorisation. For minors, therefore, the authorization of those with parental authority will be required, while for adults, consent will be needed. Once the test has been successfully completed, the testing laboratory will provide the applicants with a detailed technical report containing useful information to be submitted before the Judge
Why does a law firm need this service? For example, in the event of a legal dispute over child custody arrangements, in case of a the separation of the spouses. There are many cases: the paternity test can be required after the mother's death, referring to the need to establish the biological paternity. There's also the case of the family reunification, which is a very common situation especially for immigrant minors who come to Italy alone. The paternity test is required even in case of heritage disputes or in cases of artificial insemination to ascertain the actual biological paternity
The paternity test for information, just as that carried out for law firms, makes it possible to ascertain whether a man is actually the biological father of a child (even of another adult). The concept behind is very simple and comes directly from the laws of human nature. Each one of us has half the genetic heritage of the mother and half of the father. By analsying the child's genetic profile and therefore comparing it with that of the parents, it's possible to find out the actual biological paternity of the father.
