Your Family Tree and DNA Testing

I recently spoke with Advocate Daily about DIY DNA testing and how the results are, well, surprising to many people and many families.

When DNA or genealogy results show that a presumed parent is not a biological parent, the term used is a non-paternity event (NPE).

Results like this can be devastating to individuals and families and can cause significant emotional trauma. They can also cause significant legal issues. Where and NPE occurs in a family, special planning is needed to ensure who you want to inherit your estate actually will.
