What about the minimum to maximum on the similarities of a fingerprint

Thanks so much for all this helpful info! I just did a science fair project on fingerprints and I'm going to a state competition because of it

An exact number of 'points' to establish an identification is difficult to assign. However, there can be NO unexplained, non-matching 'points'. If there is even just one disagreement, there is no identification, absolutely. You mentioned there were a number of non-matching points. Actually, you used the terms 'lines', which could be a different situation, but "points", not lines, are the identifying features.

If less than 5 points matched and more lines did not match - does that mean it couldn't be that person's fingerprints? It is my understanding that many fingerprints can have a few lines that can be like other peoples fingerprints and that it is the amount of lines that match perfectly with none NOT matching that identify's the fingerprints. Can you give me a definite answer concerning this? It is of my son and his death and very important to me.

In America, there has never been a legal requirement for a minimum number of matching "points," though up until about 1943 (64 years ago), some law enforcment publications (such as the FBI's "The Science of Fingerprints") cited twelve points.
Please see other information here ...and also here.

don't know about the usa but in the uk and northern ireland we work to a non numeric standard. uk from june 2001 and northern ireland from april 2007. this means that every mark is examined on its own merit and the opinion of the expert is how the decision to take it to court is made. there is no magic number as such anymore.

Thank you for your time.
I have been searching for this piece of information for quite some time and have not had much luck. How many minutiae points must match for a positive identification within the U.S. court of law?
For comparisons, do you know of any other countries?
