Tennessee Approved Sibling DNA Test

(includes DNA kit, free rush shipping both ways, lab processing for 2 siblings, 100% accurate results )

The goal of this type of genetic testing is to discover paternity (in most cases) when the possible biological father is not feasable for DNA testing. It is also commonly when the mother is not sure and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has distinct laws regarding paternity, and what testing is allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Tennessee please go to PATERNITY LAWS.

A Home Sibling Test Kit In Tennessee Has No Restraints, Unlike Some Other States.

A DNA sibling test can be performed for either personal knowledge, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no difference in the findings in Tennessee, due to the rigerous 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 proof of whose DNA was taken. When a chain-of-custody DNA test is done, the DNA samples are collected by a qualified professional collector who can verify 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 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 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 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 allows you to get the answer, if two persons have 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 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 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.
