New Jersey Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The goal of this category of DNA test is to verify the findings of paternity (in most cases) when the possible biological father is not able to submit a specimen for DNA testing. It is also regularly when the mother is not certain and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has different laws regarding paternity, and what testing is allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in New Jersey please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In New Jersey Has No Regulations, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be conducted for either personal knowledge, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no difference in the outcome in New Jersey, due to the rigerous standards 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 unbiased verification of whose DNA was taken. When a legal DNA test is done, the DNA samples are collected by a competent 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 personal knowledge 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 inheritance issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been demanding 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 shows whether two or more persons 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 knowledge that it is understood that one parent is shared by both people. When taking the full-sibling test, you should let us know 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 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 answer the question 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 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.
