A Home Sibling Test Kit In Rhode Island Has No Regulations, 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 Rhode Island, due to the strict policies used by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be confirmed in a judicial setting however, because there is no objective verification of whose DNA was taken. When a legal DNA test is completed, the DNA samples are collected by a competent 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 personal knowledge 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 estate 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 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 indicates whether two people share 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 individuals. When taking the full-sibling test, you should indicate 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 allows you to establish, if two individuals have a biological father or mother in common, or if they are not genetically 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 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.
