Utah Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, free rush shipping both ways, lab processing for 2 siblings, 100% accurate results )
The purpose of this variety of genetic test is to detect paternity (in most cases) when the suspected father is not accessible for DNA testing. It is also generally 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 recognized. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Utah please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Utah Has No Restrictions, 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 Utah, due to the ridgid standards employed by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be recognized in a judicial setting however, because there is no unbiased proof of whose DNA was provided. When a legal DNA test is completed, the DNA samples are collected by a qualified 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 peace of mind 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 requiring some people 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 shows whether two people are bioligically related with the same mother AND father. A exclusionary report will show that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the idea 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 sure 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 to resolve the question, if two individuals 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 requesting 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 step-by-step 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.
