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

The idea of this sort of DNA examination is to discover paternity (in most cases) when the possible biological father is not accessible 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 tests are permitted.

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

A DNA sibling test can be performed for either peace-of-mind, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the findings in Washington, due to the ridgid standards employed by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be confirmed in court however, because there is no nonpartisan verification 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 substantiate the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with siblings is done, it is for personal knowledge 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 inheritance 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 provides evidence whether two individuals share the same mother AND father. A negative findings will indicate that those testing are half-siblings. This is because the testing is done with the understanding that it is known that one parent is shared by both siblings. When taking the full-sibling test, you should let us know 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 to resolve the question, if two individuals have a biological father or mother in common, or if they are not genetically related to each other as siblings. A half-sibling test will not be able to provide an answer if those testing are a full-siblings. When ordering 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.
