We live in Minnesota.

My daughter is 19 years old, and there is this delusional man that I never met, that thinks he is her father. This man has obtained personal information, and keeps harrassing us by phone. We believe that he at times has followed my daughter.
My daughters birth father and I were never married, but his name was put on her birth certificate. She was legally adopted in 1985, so all original records have been sealed.
This man is now had some lawyer write a letter asking for my daughter to submit to a test. She wants nothing to do with this sick delusional man.

He has attempted to lure her to meet him via the phone, which scares her.

Do we have to prove anything to this man? Can she be forced to give DNA to some freak?

Thank you!

My response:

Your daughter is an adult, and has no legal, moral or ethical responsibility or duty to endure any type of paternity test.

Your daughter should obtain a Restraining Order, both against the Attorney and, of course, the "mystery man".

How do I do that without an address?

I only have the attorny's name & address, so how do I file an restraining order to the guy?

Can I file the restraining order on my daughters behalf?

I really appreciate your time! Thank you for responding!

My response:

No, you cannot file on behalf of your daughter. Because she's an adult, she must initiate and take all necessary steps on her own. Of course, you can go along for the ride, but you cannot be her "advocate".

She can get more help here:

Good luck to you.
