Kansas Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The scope of this category of testing is to detect paternity (in most cases) when the possible father is not available for DNA testing. It is also usually 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 testing is permitted. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Kansas please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Kansas Has No Regulations, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be conducted for either peace-of-mind, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the outcome in Kansas, due to the ridgid standards employed by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be accepted in a judicial setting however, because there is no nonpartisan proof of whose DNA was provided. When a legal DNA test is done, the DNA samples are collected by a experienced professional collector who can validate the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for confidential information. A legal sibling test will be needed, however, if you want to change a name on the birth record, apply for Social Security benefits for a child, have a estate issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been requesting some people to validate 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 indicates whether two individuals share the same mother AND father. A exclusionary report will show that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the knowledge that it is understood 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 certain 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 get the answer, if two individuals share a biological father or mother in common, or if they are not genetically related to each other as siblings. A half-sibling DNA test will not be able to tell you if those testing are a full-siblings. When requesting 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 collection is done with buccal (cheek) swabs and is actually more accurate than using a blood sample for DNA testing. You will receive step-by-step 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.
