New and revised info for this answer - There is a case pending right now before the U.S. Supreme Court that may have some bearing on your case.  It is Astrue v. Capato.  The Court heard oral arguments in mid-March ... a decision should be issued by June 2012.

If you go to this link you can locate an experienced professional in your location, or at least in your state.  If this doesn't work, I strongly recommend Legal Aid or the legal clinic of a Law School in your area or State.

Do not give up hope.  There are other methods that can be used.  I once successfully represented a mother of three children and used verified statements from deceased's mother, mother of children, friends, and relatives of the father.  We did not have or use DNA,   It is not the only way.

Keep hope alive!

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
