(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)

A Home Sibling Test Kit In New Mexico Has No Regulations, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be performed for either personal knowledge, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the results in New Mexico, due to the ridgid standards employed by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be confirmed in a judicial setting however, because there is no unbiased 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 establish the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for confidential verification. 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 tax filers 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 shows whether two or more persons have 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 people. 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 get the answer, if two persons 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 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.
