My question involves paternity law for the State of: Washington State
I have never known my father, and he does not know of me. I recently got the name of who my mother believes my father is and I would like a paternity test but I do not know how to go about requesting one. Is there any way to do it through the courts although I am over 18? I am 22. I do not want to just confront him as I did a background check on him and his background was a bit sketchy, so I would really like to do it through a more formal manner if possible.
Thank you for your help.
