if your parents were legally married at the time of your conception and birth, then legally you are the son of your mother's husband. Only he can claim you are not his son.

in my opinion, it cannot be done because you would be impugning your own status as a legitimate child. the law allows that to be done by only one person, the husband, and he had only 1 year to do it after you were born. after which, it is barred forever.
