Anon_232928 posted:
Could mother and child's DNA have gotten mixed up? Ok, so I got the DNA test back and it shows 0.0% not the father. Is there anyway they could have gotten DNA with mine and my childs mixed up. There are many similarities between mine and the fathers so if they would have gotten them switched they would be the childs and his similarities on the dna.
Here is what the test looked like and read if they would have gotten them switched

Could a mix up of happened, I have no idea if these should be common or how many needs to because I dont know what they mean. I know there is some that don't match thats why I am wanting opinions before I go and tell paternity place about it. Sorry I couldnt get pic to post and it messed it all up so I put parenthesis after numbers of each person.

I would ask them about it because unless you all are blood related and didn't know it I don't know how yours would match the potential father's so closely

Kay Kay is right. I honestly don't know how to interpret this directly. Ask the lab who did the test, or the doctor who ordered it, to explain this. I agree it looks odd, if I understand the way you put in the data.
