Customer Question
I have an issue over...
I have an issue over the paternity of a child when i say child she is adult now and i only found out last january that she exist i have kept on asking for the test but they are evasive and will not agree this has broken through the defences of my mind the months it has gone on for and the prospects of never really knowing for sure it is cruel to say the least.Is there some way of forcing the test or through a different channel.
