Using DNA Testing to Prove Infidelity
It used to be that a person or couple who wanted a divorce had to show legal “fault” of one of the spouses before a court could grant it. One of the ways to do that was to show infidelity. Today, nearly every state has done away with the requirement to prove legal fault to get a divorce. But proof of infidelity can still be very important in the determination of matters within the divorce proceeding. Fortunately, the science of DNA testing, makes that kind of proof a much more cut and dried matter than it once was.
Proof of infidelity can affect whether a spouse receives alimony, how the court divides marital property, and sometimes even child custody and visitation. Infidelity can also come into play if the spouses signed a pre- or post-nuptial agreement that includes it as a factor.
Private investigators helping a client in trying to resolve a suspicion of infidelity can use DNA testing of personal and even intimate objects such as sheets, toothbrushes, pajamas or underwear to show whether another person has been physically present in those areas. A positive finding can be very strong evidence in support of a claim of infidelity.
Formal Forensically Reliable DNA Testing Increases Certainty of Outcomes
Attorneys and private investigators routinely rely on legally admissible, forensically sound, DNA testing providers because they know the pitfalls of using informal, home-based test kits. The increased reliability of forensic dna testing also increases certainty of the results. Greater confidence in the results of testing, whatever they reveal, can provide peace of mind and final closure in a difficult relationship matter.
