Maine Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, free rush shipping both ways, lab processing for 2 siblings, 100% accurate results )
The purpose of this type of DNA examination is to verify the findings of paternity (in most cases) when the possible father is not able to submit a specimen for DNA testing. It is also as a rule done discreetly when the mother is not convinced and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has various laws regarding paternity, and what testing is recognized.

A Home Sibling Test Kit In Maine Has No Restraints, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be conducted for either personal knowledge, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the DNA report in Maine, due to the stringent criteria required by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be accepted in court however, because there is no nonpartisan demonstation of whose DNA was contributed. When a legal DNA test is completed, the DNA samples are collected by a trained professional collector who can establish 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 estate issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been demanding 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 provides evidence whether two individuals are bioligically related with the same mother AND father. A exclusionary findings will show that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the idea that it is known that one parent is shared by both siblings. When taking the full-sibling test, you should indicate 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 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 taking 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.
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 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.
