Brother A and Brother B has slept with Mother A. Mother A becomes pregnant. Now Mother A wants to know if he is the biological father of the offspring. Can a DNA test accurately determine the paternity? If only one brother gets tested, and the results show its 99.7% and also states that out of 3471 to 1 that he is the father most likely that he is the parent. The other brother will not be tested willingly. Should the other brother be made to be tested to make sure that brother A is positively the father? To what degree of certainty? Both brothers share the same parents, obviously.
