Ohio Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The purpose of this sort of DNA testing is to determine paternity (in most cases) when the alledged biological father is not available 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 particular laws regarding paternity, and what tests are permitted. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Ohio please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Ohio Has No Regulations, 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 findings in Ohio, due to the ridgid standards used by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be recognized in court however, because there is no unbiased verification of whose DNA was contributed. When a chain-of-custody DNA test is done, the DNA specimens are collected by a experienced professional collector who can validate the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for private 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 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 indicates whether two or more persons are bioligically related with the same mother AND father. A exclusionary result will show 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 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 helps you to determine, if two individuals share a biological father or mother in common, or if they are not biologically related to each other as siblings. A half-sibling test will not be able to provide an answer 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 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 instructions 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.
