A Home Sibling Test Kit In New York Has No Restrictions, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be performed for either peace-of-mind, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no difference in the findings in New York, due to the ridgid criteria required by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be endorsed for use in court however, because there is no unbiased proof of whose DNA was taken. When a chain-of-custody DNA test is done, the DNA samples are collected by a trained professional collector who can substantiate 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.

Know The Difference Between A Half-Sibling Test And A Full-Sibling Test.
A full-sibling test provides evidence whether two individuals share the same mother AND father. A negative findings will indicate that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the understanding that it is known that one parent is shared by both siblings. 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 helps you to get the answer, if two persons 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 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.
