South Dakota Approved Sibling DNA Test


(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)

The goal of this category of genetic examination is to discover paternity (in most cases) when the potential biological father is not able to submit a specimen for DNA testing. It is also usually when the mother is not positive and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has various laws regarding paternity, and what testing is authorized. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in South Dakota please go to PATERNITY LAWS.

A Home Sibling Test Kit In South Dakota Has No Regulations, Unlike Some Other States.

A DNA sibling test can be conducted for either personal knowledge, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the outcome in South Dakota, due to the stringent criteria employed by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be endorsed for use in court however, because there is no objective verification of whose DNA was contributed. When a chain-of-custody DNA test is completed, the DNA samples are collected by a competent professional collector who can authenticate the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for confidential verification. 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 demanding some people to prove the relationship of 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 individuals share the same mother AND father. A negative result will show that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the knowledge that it is understood that one parent is shared by both people. 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 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 tell you if those testing are a full-siblings. When requesting 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.
