I read the attached article with great interest. As a family lawyer, the status of parents who are or are not biologically linked to a child is often questioned, as are their rights and responsibilities as a result of this.

These scientific findings could lead to the biological parentage of children being very complex and not necessarily involving two parents.

Dr Perry indicates we may still be some time off this being achieved.

If you have any queries or concerns about DNA testing or the rights and responsibilities of parents, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
