Arkansas Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The purpose of this type of DNA examination is to establish paternity (in most cases) when the suspected biological father is not accessible for DNA testing. It is also regularly when the mother is not positive and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has distinctive laws regarding paternity, and what testing is allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Arkansas please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Arkansas Has No Restrictions, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be conducted for either personal knowledge, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no difference in the DNA report in Arkansas, due to the rigerous criteria used by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be accepted in court however, because there is no objective demonstation of whose DNA was taken. When a legal DNA test is completed, the DNA samples are collected by a trained professional collector who can substantiate the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for private information. A legal sibling test will be needed, however, if you want to change a name on the birth certificate, apply for Social Security benefits for a child, have a probate issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been requiring some tax filers to prove the relationship of their dependents by the use of DNA testing.
Know The Difference Between A Half-Sibling Test And A Full-Sibling Test.
A full-sibling test provides evidence whether two people share the same mother AND father. A exclusionary result will indicate that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the understanding that it is known that one parent is shared by both individuals. When taking the full-sibling test, you should let us know which one of the parents you are sure you have in common (the mother or the father) and which of the parent you are uncertain about.
A half-sibling DNA test enables you to learn, if two persons share a biological father or mother in common, or if they are not biologically related to each other as siblings. A half-sibling DNA test will not be able to answer the question if those testing are a full-siblings. When ordering the half-sibling test, you must always state which one of the parents you are sure you do not have in common, the father or the mother, and which of the parents you might have in common.
How Is The DNA Collected?
DNA is collected with buccal (cheek) swabs and is actually more accurate than using a blood sample for DNA testing. You will receive detailed instructions for collecting samples inside the Journey Genetic Testing sibling test kit. The entire process will take less than 15 minutes, and they you can return it to our lab in the prepaid FedEx overnight package included as part of your kit.
