Sibling DNA Testing
Sibling DNA Testing is a DNA test process that is performed to determine if two or more people share one or both parents. For example to determine if they are full or half siblings. This is an indirect method to prove family relationships when the alleged father is not able to perform a paternity test.
Test Me DNA offers Sibling DNA Testing nationwide. One low price of $179 includes everything required for Sibling DNA test results.
With all relationship testing, the mother of the child is always urged to test. This allows less of a chance to receive inconclusive results. If the biological mother is not available, the test can still be performed. To discuss the best options, give us a call to help you decide what is best.

Full Sibling vs Half Sibling DNA Testing
When two siblings share the same mother and want to learn if they share the same biological father a full sibling DNA test would be performed. If the test confirms the biological father of the siblings they would be full siblings.
The full sibling test can only be used if two siblings share the same mother.
Half Sibling vs Not Related DNA Testing
When two siblings do not share the same biological mother but want to learn if they share the same biological father.
The half sibling test can be performed with or without the mothers involved. Adding a mother to testing is always encouraged for more conclusive and accurate results.

Sibling DNA Testing FAQ
A sibling paternity test is when 1 person is trying to determine their paternity by testing with a possible sibling. 1 or more known children to the father would be tested against the unknown child to the father. The sibling paternity testing would compare the people testing to see if they share the same father.
If a father or alleged father is not willing or not available to test, a sibling DNA test is a great option.
Children receive a half of their DNA from each parent. When testing samples from a sibling test, the lab looks at the genetic markers to reconstruct parts that came from the parent at question. Testing the mother helps with the reconstruction, because if you include the mother, you can see exactly what part of the DNA came from the father.
The most common reasons to do a legal sibling DNA test would be because the father is deceased and unable to test.
Sibling DNA testing for social security survivor benefits, can be used if the child at question is a minor. If the child at question is not a minor, then it is commonly used for inheritance purposes or probate court.
Yes! Home DNA testing kits are available for all of our relationship DNA tests.
For all of our home DNA testing kits, a simple buccal swab is the only acceptable sample.
If you choose to do a DNA collection at one of our facilities, the most common sample is a buccal swab. But blood samples can be collected if requested in advance.
A minimum of 2 people need to be tested for a sibling DNA test. But some sibling tests may need additional siblings to be included to get a definitive answer. This all depends on how the DNA was passed from the parents to the children. Parents will not always pass the same alleles to each of their children.
If the child at question is a male, it is always best to do a DNA test with a brother or possible brother. If the 2 brothers are doing DNA testing to determine paternity, there are Y chromosomes that would be an exact match down the male lineage.
If the child at question is a female, DNA testing with a sister or a brother would hold the same level of accuracy.
