Finding my half brother
« on: Tuesday 28 November 17 01:58 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find out who my half brother is. My father admitted that he impregnated a girl before his first marriage, but won't tell us anything about the girl or her son. He just told us we have a half brother, but won't give us any more information than that.

If he was not acknowledged on the birth certificate, and you have no idea of the Mother's surname, nor place nor month of birth, then the chances are just about non-existent.

Do you believe your father had any more contact after the pregnancy and birth?
