Texas Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The principle of this type of genetic examination is to discover paternity (in most cases) when the alledged biological father is not available for DNA testing. It is also ordinarily when the mother is not sure and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has various laws regarding paternity, and what testing is allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Texas please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Texas Has No Restrictions, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be completed for either personal knowledge, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the results in Texas, due to the strict criteria employed by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be confirmed in court however, because there is no unbiased verification of whose DNA was provided. When a legal DNA test is completed, the DNA specimens are collected by a trained 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 peace of mind information. 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 requiring 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 provides evidence whether two or more persons are bioligically related with 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 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 get the answer, if two persons share 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 tell you 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.
