Under Oregon law, there is no statute of limitation to establish paternity. Thus, you can file for paternity and force the parent to submit to a DNA test through a court order. If the judge orders the DNA test, the parent will have no choice but to submit.
Yes, anything is possible. However, if you can tell the judge that there's any reasonable basis that you are related, he is going to order the test. DNA tests are not invasive, so it's not some huge obligation to put on someone.
