Nebraska Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The scope of this variety of study is to figure out paternity (in most cases) when the possible biological father is not feasable for DNA testing. It is also commonly when the mother is not convinced and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has particular laws regarding paternity, and what tests are allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Nebraska please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Nebraska Has No Restraints, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be completed for either peace-of-mind, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the outcome in Nebraska, due to the strict criteria required by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be confirmed in a judicial setting however, because there is no unbiased confirmation of whose DNA was contributed. When a legal DNA test is done, the DNA specimens are collected by a experienced 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 peace of mind reasons. 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 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 provides evidence whether two individuals are bioligically related with 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 knowledge that it is understood that one parent is shared by both people. 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 enables you to to resolve the question, if two possible siblings 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 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 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.
