North Carolina Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, free rush shipping both ways, lab processing for 2 siblings, 100% accurate results )
The purpose of this category of DNA study is to figure out paternity (in most cases) when the suspected biological father is not accessible 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 various laws regarding paternity, and what tests are allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in North Carolina please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In North Carolina Has No Restrictions, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be performed for either peace-of-mind, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no difference in the DNA report in North Carolina, due to the rigerous standards employed by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be endorsed for use in a judicial setting however, because there is no unbiased demonstation of whose DNA was provided. When a legal DNA test is done, the DNA specimens are collected by a trained professional collector who can verify the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for confidential 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 tax filers 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 people are bioligically related with the same mother AND father. A exclusionary result will indicate that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the understanding that it is understood 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 sure 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 learn, if two persons share 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 provide an answer if those testing are a full-siblings. When ordering 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 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.
