A Home Sibling Test Kit In West Virginia Has No Regulations, Unlike Some Other States.
A DNA sibling test can be conducted for either personal knowledge, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the DNA report in West Virginia, due to the stringent standards required 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 confirmation of whose DNA was contributed. When a legal DNA test is completed, the DNA specimens are collected by a experienced 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 private reasons. 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 people 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 or more persons 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 understood 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 enables you to establish, 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 tell you 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.
