Because your son is no longer a minor, it is his decision whether to pursue the paternity. You cannot force him to take a DNA test. Also, child support is retroactive only to the date of filing with the court. Since your son is no longer a minor, you could not win an award for child support since no order was made prior to his becoming an adult.
