My question involves paternity law for the State of: Washington/Oregon
Both men live in washington, the mother and child live in oregon, child was born in washington.
My fiancee recently got a legal DNA test, collected at a lab and noterized although not through the courts, on a child he has been raising for almost 7 years. He wants his name on the birth certificate and her last name changed. The only issue is when she was born another man signed the affidavit(sp) stating he was the father. The named father never petionted it, the mother refused to get a test (until recently), and we were told up until a year ago that we couldn't ask for the test. Now that we finally have the test we were wondering where to start and what papers need to be filed to change the father on the birth certificate and to change the child's last name. Thank you for any help you can offer.
