In the 2017 case; Kohari v NSW Trustee & Guardian  NSWSC 1080 the court considered an application relating to the biological connection between the applicant and the respondent who was deceased. The applicant claimed that the deceased was his father despite never really meeting him. To reach a conclusion, the court ordered DNA testing.
The Genetic Reconstruction and Y-STR chromosome test was conducted to determine whether the applicant had a genetic match to the respondents’ living relatives. Ultimately the tests found that the parties were related, which placed significant weight on the decision of the court.
This case goes to show that kinship tests provide insightful and accurate results that allow people to resolve disputes that would otherwise be unsolvable.
