South Carolina Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The purpose of this variety of DNA examination is to establish paternity (in most cases) when the potential biological father is not able to submit a specimen for DNA testing. It is also regularly when the mother is not sure and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has distinctive laws regarding paternity, and what testing is allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in South Carolina please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In South Carolina 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 difference in the DNA report in South Carolina, due to the rigerous criteria required 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 demonstation of whose DNA was provided. When a chain-of-custody DNA test is done, the DNA samples are collected by a qualified 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 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 inheritance issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been requiring 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 demonstrates whether two individuals are bioligically related with the same mother AND father. A negative 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 siblings. 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 helps you to determine, if two possible siblings 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 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 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.
