I would like to find out if my father is my real father (biological) how can this be done without him knowing. Also can this be done after his death.
Thanks, Karl
Hello Karl, and thanks for your question.

Because the most accurate test for paternity is a dna test (blood test or cheek swab), it would be difficult to get a dna sample from your father without his knowledge. After his death, yes, a dna test can be done to determine if he is/was your biological father.
