Iowa Approved Sibling DNA Test


(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)

The principle of this variety of genetic examination is to determine paternity (in most cases) when the possible biological father is not feasable for DNA testing. It is also as a rule done discreetly when the mother is not certain and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has distinct laws regarding paternity, and what tests are permitted. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Iowa please go to PATERNITY LAWS.

A Home Sibling Test Kit In Iowa Has No Regulations, Unlike Some Other States.

A DNA sibling test can be completed for either personal knowledge, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the findings in Iowa, due to the ridgid standards used by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be accepted in court however, because there is no objective demonstation of whose DNA was contributed. When a chain-of-custody DNA test is done, the DNA samples are collected by a trained professional collector who can verify the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for personal knowledge 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 requesting some tax filers to verify 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 shows whether two or more persons share the same mother AND father. A negative result will indicate that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the understanding that it is understood that one parent is shared by both siblings. When taking the full-sibling test, you should indicate which one of the parents you are certain you have in common (the mother or the father) and which of the parent you are uncertain about.

A half-sibling DNA test allows you to get the answer, if two individuals have 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 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 directions 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.
