North Dakota Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The goal of this sort of DNA testing is to determine paternity (in most cases) when the alledged biological father is not feasable for DNA testing. It is also commonly when the mother is not certain and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has distinctive laws regarding paternity, and what testing is authorized. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in North Dakota please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In North Dakota 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 DNA report in North Dakota, due to the strict standards used by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be endorsed for use in a judicial setting however, because there is no nonpartisan demonstation of whose DNA was contributed. When a legal DNA test is completed, the DNA specimens are collected by a competent 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. A legal sibling test will be needed, however, if you want to change a name on the birth record, apply for Social Security benefits for a child, have a probate 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 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 idea 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 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 determine, 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 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.
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.
