Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.

Expert:  Ray replied 9 months ago.

No you would decide whether to release the information here.It is unlikely anybody else knows since he wasn't on birth certificate and is likely listed just as unknown.I don't think she would know unless you were to give her the information.I would seriously consider doing so here, since she is an adult it might allow her to find her bio father.He isn't liable and if he doesn't want to speak to her thats his right, but maybe he would like to see here and know of her.This is strictly your call , she likely cannot find his name otherwise.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
