Only if he adopts the child and he and the other parent later separate/divorce.

There may be some variable for interpretation here. If he's the child's only parental influence, and the father is unknown, a judge may order it, along with all the rights of a father.

The biological father may only stop paying child support under one of the following four circumstances: Death of the child; the child turns 18 and decides not to pursue higher education; the child quits or graduates higher education; or the biological father is found not to be the "true" father. So, if a stepfather adopts them, more than likely, the biological will still be responsible for child support.
