  • Like a few others have stated, you do need his DNA. (Ex: Sample of hair, saliva)

  • That's best, however, I think in some cases where the suspected "dad" passed away or is for some reason not able to be used, his parents and/or siblings could be used. I've heard of this being done.

  • yes you need the dad but what blessedmommy64 said is true if the dad passed away one of his siblings or parent could be used.

  • Not if you have some of dad's DNA. Some bodyfluids that is. Got an old hanky?
