Abstract

When calculating likelihood ratios in a specific kinship, (a) experts must be aware that the probability value in the odds-ratio numerator is the same for various kinship configurations, and (b) they should clearly convey this information to the court, (c) enabling a decision that takes into account the possibility of occurrence of alternative genealogical relationships
