I am the biological mother of a woman born in 1967.

To substantiate birth records for her and to prove that I am her biological mother, what is BEST DNA testing?

    Could you clarify what you mean by "BEST"? Do you want a test that would be valid in court? Do you want the cheapest test? The fastest? Jul 8, 2018 at 17:42

The best test to prove or disprove parentage is a standard autosomal test at any of the major DNA testing companies that provide you with your matches.

A child gets one chromosome of every pair from each parent and you will therefore match with your parent completely on every chromosome. All testing companies will identify this correctly as a parent/child match and will not mistake it with any other relationship. Other than a rare testing or lab error, it is pretty well 100% reliable for parent/child.
