What is a home sibling DNA Test?
When two people are trying to figure out if they share the same father, and the father is not available to provide a DNA sample, EDC can perform a Sibling DNA Test. This test determines whether two individuals share one or both parents.
If your goal is to establish paternity, and the father is not available for testing, we first recommend a Grandparent DNA Test. If the father’s parents aren’t available, the Sibling DNA Test is an indirect way to determine family relationships, including paternity.
Our laboratory in all cases can help you obtain DNA results of sibling testing. A majority of our customers benefit from our home sibling tests to resolve family law matters, for example, relating to child maintenance or disputes over access rights. You can also order this type of DNA sibling testing to resolve inheritance issues or fulfil immigration requirements.
A sibling test starts with the analysis of known relatives.
Examples of testing:
- Siblings do not share the same mother and they want to find out if they share the same biological father.
- Siblings share the same mother but are unsure if they share the same biological father.
- Half sibling DNA test is performed when two alleged siblings believe they only share one biological parent (as in when two siblings do not have the same biological mother but would like to know if they have the same biological father).
- Full sibling DNA test is performed when two siblings share one biological parent and would like to know if they share the other parent as well (as in when two siblings know they have the same biological mother and would like to know if they also have the same biological father).
Legal vs. at-home sibling test?
What to consider when selecting a DNA sibling test?
Legal sibling test:
Provides court-ready results that may be used to resolve child support disputes, custody disputes, probate issues and other legal matters. Samples are collected at one of LabCorp’s conveniently located certified collection facilities insuring proper chain of custody is maintained. A documented chain of custody is required for all tests that may be used for legal purposes.
At-home sibling test:
Referred to as a non-legal test or at-home test. This test is used when you just need or want answers regarding genetic relationships. A pre-paid express envelope is provided so that you may expedite your DNA samples to the lab.
Price & affordability of a home sibling test?
Home sibling tests are cheaper than legal sibling tests as we do not ensure coordination of DNA collection and other features needed to issue a legal document. Therefore, if you only need the DNA test results to reveal the truth, then an affordable home sibling test is the best choice for you. For additional peace of mind, EDC ensures that:
– The high-quality testing is strictly the same with every DNA test
– Industry-leading features include running every test twice (Duall Process) to ensure the highest accuracy
– Laboratory inspection excellence, proven by 18 perfect inspections of the most rigorous accrediting organisations
