Virginia Approved Sibling DNA Test
(includes DNA kit, 2 siblings, free rush shipping both ways)
The purpose of this sort of genetic examination is to detect paternity (in most cases) when the alledged father is not available for DNA testing. It is also as a rule done discreetly when the mother is not sure and does not want to collect the father’s DNA. Each state has particular laws regarding paternity, and what tests are allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Virginia please go to PATERNITY LAWS.
A Home Sibling Test Kit In Virginia Has No Restraints, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be conducted for either peace-of-mind, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the outcome in Virginia, due to the ridgid policies required by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA findings from home kits may not be accepted in court however, because there is no objective proof of whose DNA was contributed. When a legal DNA test is done, the DNA specimens are collected by a experienced 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 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 estate 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 shows whether two individuals share the same mother AND father. A exclusionary result 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 siblings. 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 helps you to learn, 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 DNA test will not be able to answer the question 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. There areWe provide 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.
