Louisiana Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The purpose of this category of test is to verify the findings of paternity (in most cases) when the potential father is not accessible for DNA testing. It is also as a rule done discreetly when the mother is not positive and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has distinct laws regarding paternity, and what testing is authorized. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Louisiana please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Louisiana Has No Restraints, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be completed for either peace-of-mind, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no difference in the results in Louisiana, due to the stringent criteria employed by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be recognized in a judicial setting however, because there is no nonpartisan demonstation of whose DNA was taken. When a chain-of-custody DNA test is completed, the DNA specimens are collected by a experienced 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 private 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 inheritance 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 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 indicates whether two people share the same mother AND father. A negative report will indicate that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the idea that it is understood that one parent is shared by both individuals. 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 helps you to get the answer, if two individuals 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 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 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.
