All too often, we hear about cases where people claim to be heir to a recently deceased person's assets. Today, DNA testing is heavily relied upon to resolve questions of relatedness in these cases. However, many times the decedent has already undergone burial once a DNA test is decided to be necessary. So, then bodies are sometimes exhumed, which can expend a lot of time and monetary effort, and certainly cause emotional distress to the decedent's family. Had a DNA sample already been taken from the decedent, a DNA test could be performed quickly and efficiently. Some argue that DNA retrieval services are unethical. Had the person wanted to have their DNA profile made, they would have done so in their living years. While this may be true in some cases, it is difficult to argue that DNA retrieval from a decedent is not logical. In the past, other methods were used to determine biological relatedness in cases where people claimed to have been related to deceased persons. So, why not use DNA technology, which can quickly and accurately resolve these issues? It is likely that permission for DNA retrieval upon death will become a standard feature in wills and estate planning arrangements.
