Michigan Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, free rush shipping both ways, lab processing for 2 siblings, 100% accurate results )
The principle of this type of genetic testing is to detect paternity (in most cases) when the possible father is not able to submit a specimen for DNA testing. It is also generally 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 allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Michigan please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Michigan Has No Restrictions, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be completed for either personal knowledge, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the outcome in Michigan, due to the rigerous policies used by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be recognized in a judicial setting however, because there is no objective confirmation of whose DNA was contributed. When a legal DNA test is done, the DNA samples are collected by a competent professional collector who can authenticate the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for personal knowledge verification. 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 probate issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been requesting some people 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 demonstrates whether two individuals are bioligically related with the same mother AND father. A negative 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 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 enables you to establish, if two possible siblings have 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 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 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 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.
