Undeterred by the withdrawal of paternity suit filed against him, Justin Bieber takes a paternity test anyway. Bieber states that the story is untrue and nothing like that has ever happened as claimed by Mariah Yeater. Bieber and his team have affirmed that the 17-year-old is not the father of Yeater’s child.
Well, in the first place while learning the subject of DNA Paternity test, one needs to understand what it is DNA testing all about and why is such a process conducted.
In simple words, a paternity or parental test is a relationship analysis process, conducted to find out the probability of a biological match with the samples from the alleged father/parent and the child. In order to dispel or confirm the doubts about a biological relationship between two or more people, this method can be utilized. It determines parentage. Paternity testing can be legal, used for immigration, or done in the prenatal phase.
In today’s context, painless DNA samples and highly accurate DNA matching facilities / techniques are made conveniently available, when trying to establish a genetic relationship between 2 or more people. DNA samples from each person will be collected and then analyzed in a laboratory.
Paternity testing is highly reliable; so much so that any other method for determining the paternity of a child is now disused. If the alleged father is the biological of a child, the paternity test result will show a probability of paternity of 99.9% or higher. If on the other hand, the alleged father is not the biological father of the child, the paternity test result will indicate a 0% probability. This is also true, if the alleged father is a very close relative of the child- the test will still, in such cases, be conclusive.
Yeater in one of her signed affidavit claims that she had unprotected sex with Bieber last October and is now assuming to hold Bieber partly responsible for the act. However, following the result of the test, Bieber is considering the options of legal action against her for her paternity test lawsuit.
