If a biological father is not determined and the child is adopted by another man through the court can paternity be determined at 6 years of age and would the biological father have any rights left?
By Canadian Law if the mother of the child purposely did not contact the biological father and she married and her husband adopted the child and the biological father found out then yes, he can take you to court. If he can prove he's reliable, holds down a good job, is not into drugs and contributes to society then yes, he can have some rights. It will take a court of law and two lawyers to fight this one. The bottom line is ... "What is good for the child?"

Can a father simply sign over his parental rights in Ontario Canada or must the child be adopted by another man in the biological mother's life?
Answer . You can sign over the rights to your child to the mother herself. \n. \nBefore you do this realize what you are doing. Your child needs to know who their fathe…r is. You may not feel this is important right now, but to that child YOU will always be their father. If your girlfriend/wife is seeing another man and they should live together or get married, you have every right to see your child by the order of a Custody Hearing (such as: once each weekend, summer vacation and certain holidays.) The only reason you should give up your rights to custody is:\n. \nAbuse of alcohol or drugs\nNot psychologically capable of this responsibility\nRefusing to pay child support\nSimply not wanting to be in your child's life. (be real sure of this one!)\n. \nI would like to add that just because you have partial custody of your child does not tie you down from moving where you choose to move and you only have to see your child once a week and not even on holidays if this is your wish. All that should be expected from you is to be part of your child's life to let them know you love them. If you make a promise to do something with them then keep your promise! This child is part of who you are!\n. \nMarcy

If a father signs his rights away and allows another man to adopt his child does the biological father still have to pay the back child support?
That depends, on a couple of things. First is any money owed to the state, if you received state assistance the state will require to be paid back some of the funds. Second, i…f there is no court order in effect that states the back support could be nulled then he still owes. This answer above is correct, but to make it a little more understandable I wanted to add that my husband just legally adopted my daughter from my first marriage. My ex had not contacted her for more than 6 months and had nothing to do with her, so he couldn't contest the adoption. He is no longer liable for current child support, but still owes all the back child support. They will still collect his tax returns or any other moneys he is due like paycheck with holding.

You need to see a lawyer. Look for "Legal Aid" in your state as they offer free or low-cost legal advice. If someone is the "biological" father, he doesn't adopt the child, i…t is his child. He is legally obligated (in the USA) to provide support (money) for the child's needs. The only exception is if the mother was married to another man at the time of the birth, then legally the husband is considered the baby's father (even if everyone knows and admits that the other man is the baby's biological father). If you're asking whether the biological father can be forced to take care of the child in his own house, the answer is "no" he can give up his parental rights to the child. If you're asking whether the biological father can take the child away from the mother and her boyfriend/husband, the answer is "maybe" if he can PROVE to a court that the baby's mother is unfit and he (the biological father) is a better parent. If the father WANTS to be involved in the baby's life even though the mother has a new boyfriend/husband, the father MUST be allowed to have visitation with his child. Not allowing him to see the child may cause the courts to consider the mother not fit to raise the child. Again, GET LEGAL ADVICE from a lawyer.
yes you can contact your biological father, you have every right some families dont want their kids to contact the biological parents but the choice it all yours
