There is an entity, the Executive Office for Immigration Review, (EOIR) within the Department of Justice that under delegated authority from the Attorney General, immigration judges and the Board of Immigration Appeals interprets and adjudicates immigration cases according to United States immigration laws.
In the current atmosphere of "eye on the illegal", suppose your client is being held or deported for minor confrontations with the law but he or she is the sole provider for a family here in the United States. Perhaps proving the biological relationship between your client and the dependent family would allow the judge some leniency on behalf of your client. When birth certficates are incomplete or not available, when marriage and death certificates are unreliable or unavailable, a prompt Chain of Custody DNA Test can provide indisputable proof to a judge that your client is biologically related to a person here in the USA. DNA Tests are routinely used to confirm paternity, maternity, grand paternity, siblings and avuncular relationships. Proof of biological relationships assist families in obtaining benefits that would otherwise go under utilized (or back to the employer) if biological relationships were not properly declared at birth.
An EOIR immigration judge conducts administrative court proceedings in immigration courts located throughout the United States. In New Jersey, the immigration Judges are:

These judges can determine whether foreign born individuals - who are charged by the Department of Homeland Security DHS) with violoating immigration laws should be removed or be granted relief from removal and be permitted to remain in this country. What better reason to allow a man or woman to stay in this country, if they are the provider of a family in need and if a biological relationship exists and can be proven using today's most up to date technogy - the DNA Test. Perhaps a young man or woman is the sole provider and/or family member of an elderly parent or grand parent. Non-invasive DNA Tests can confirm grand paternity and
