Connecticut Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The principle of this category of genetic testing is to detect paternity (in most cases) when the potential biological father is not accessible for DNA testing. It is also ordinarily when the mother is not convinced and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has distinctive laws regarding paternity, and what tests are authorized. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Connecticut please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Connecticut Has No Restraints, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be performed for either peace-of-mind, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no difference in the DNA report in Connecticut, due to the strict policies used by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be endorsed for use 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 personal knowledge reasons. 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 inheritance issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been requesting some people 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 individuals are bioligically related with 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 knowledge 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 helps you to determine, if two possible siblings share a biological father or mother in common, or if they are not biologically related to each other as siblings. A half-sibling test will not be able to tell you if those testing are a full-siblings. When ordering the half-sibling test, you should 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.
