If the mother is not married to anyone else there is no one else considered to be the more likely father, so the father's marital status does not bar him from claiming the child and signing the birth certificate if he is willing to do so.


The parent(s) can put anyone's name on the birth certificate. This statement is not true in the state of Kansas. My son had a child with a married woman who was separated from her husband. In the state of Kansas the husband is always considered the father of the child. In order to get the true parent's name on the birth certificate a divorce has to take place and then the real parent has to go to court to ask for his name to be put on the birth certificate. A divorce is not needed but the biological father has to provide proof via a DNA test and show the court and then his name can be put on the birth certificate.


No. The father has never established his paternity. Therefore he has no legal parental rights of consent for anything regarding the young woman. She must get the consent of her mother.


If an unmarried woman gives birth in North Carolina, the newborn is given her last name if the father is not present. The father of the child must sign the birth certificate in order for the child to be given his last name.


Absolutely not!! The hospital wouldn't allow it, anyway - the father must sign an acknowledgment of paternity to add his name to the birth certificate.


He has just stated that the child is his and she can seek support from him for that child.


The easiest way (small fee for the document) is to apply to Vital Statistics to get the birth certificate of your husband's child. The other woman does not have to give the birth certificate if she chooses not to.


a stepmother is another woman who got married to you father when your birth mom and dad got a divorce


Believe it or not, MANY states consider the husband of the woman who gave birth to be the legally and financially responsible father of the child she bore, regardless of whether his name appears on the birth certificate, or not.


First need to determine if it's legal in that state. Currently in New York, an ex-husband is still required to pay child support to the child's mother who is now married to the bio dad.


What do you want to know about his birth? His mother was a white woman from Hawaii, his father was a black man from Kenya, in Hawaii on a student visa. They married in Hawaii in the late 50's. Barack was born there.


This question is a complicated one in that the laws of paternity do not necessarily establish the biological father as the father for child support purposes but rather look to the circumstances surrounding the case. Your husband is what is known as a presumed father, which is essentially a man that was married to the mother when the child was born, legally agreed to be the father of his wife's child (by signing the birth certificate, and has acted and behaved as the child's father. You cannot receive child support from both the presumed father (if he is still your husband) and the biological father (assuming he admits to being the father) and a court would likely determine your husband to be the father for purposes of child support.


Yeah they can , actually my big sister had a baby and her and her partner ( a woman) names are both on the birth certificate


There is no single, universal answer to your question. The laws vary in different jurisdictions. However, the following is general information pertinent to the United States, Canada and the UK.Most jurisdictions require the father to sign an acknowledgment of paternity when the mother is unmarried. An unmarried mother is not allowed to simply write in a man's name arbitrarily and burden him with fatherhood forever. It should also be noted that simply naming a father does not make him legally the father. Any man who has doubts regarding his paternity can request a paternity test through the court that will either affirm or deny he is the father.For example California state law permits the father's name to be reported on the birth certificate only if the couple is legally married or if the father agrees to give up his legal rights to challenge paternity voluntarily by signing a Declaration of Paternity form. The form is available at medical facilities that offer pre-natal care, other pregnancy issues and delivery.In the UK, a married woman can register the father's name on the birth certificate without him being present. A married father can also register a birth without his wife being present. If the woman is not married then the father, or the person she has decided to name as the father, must be present when the baby is registered. Likewise, the mother must be present when an unmarried father tries to register a birth. On the other hand she does not have to put any name what-so-ever if she chooses not to if she is not married. If she is married then her husband will automatically be entered as the father whether she wants it on there or not.


the only person that knows your father is the woman who bore you, she is the only honest person that will tell you who your father is, otherwise there is no otherways when you dont even have BC


Here if the court has given the custody of the children to the mother then she is free to take them anywhere. Also, depending on where you are, if the father is not on the birth certificate there is no permission needed. As far as legality, however, if the father is on the birth certificate or paternity has been determined by a court the father's permission would be needed.


There is an old common law saying, "A wise child knows his father." We always know who the Mother of a child is, but a name on the birth certificate only means that man is now legally responsible for the child's support, whether he actually fathered the child or not. There is also a presumption, if a man is married to a woman, he is the father of any child from the marriage. So if you are unsure about who actually fathered the child, a paternity test needs to be performed. But just because the man named on the birth certificate may not have actually fathered the child, most courts will make him still legally responsible for the child's support.


By showing his marriage certificate? PS A woman cannot prove she is married by proving she is lacating :-)


Both parties are responsible, they are adults new what they were getting into and need to take responsibility for their actions, The baby should be loved by both parties or just get an abortion as soon as u find out. Legally, in most states the woman's husband will be listed on the child's birth certificate as the father unless she can divorce him before the baby is born. Later, if she gets DNA testing to determine paternity, I suppose she could have an amended birth certificate issued, but that might get messy.


A stepmom is the name given to the woman who marries your father after your natural mother has died or divorced from him. The name shows she isn't your birth mother, but is married to your dad.


Cleopatra's father was officially married to a woman named Cleopatra V.


no matter how old the father doesn't really have a say its up to the woman and its her final decision like an abortion. The father cannot say anything. JJ3001


If a man learns that a child is not his biological child, the next steps depend partly on the state laws and marital status. If a man was married to the mother of the child, and living with her at the time of conception or birth, then he is the unquestioned father of the child in nearly every state. Most states do not give a man an 'out' from child support if the child is later shown to be not his biological child. If a man and woman were not married, and she conceives and places the man's name on the birth certificate as father, or after birth tells state agencies that he is the father, there is more room for change. If the man demands paternity testing and DNA or other tests conclusively prove the child is not his, he can petition to have his name taken off the birth certificate in most states, and can petition the family court to remove the child support order from him.


How could you have a 3 year old from a husband that left you 8 years ago? If the husband is not the father and there is no father listed on the birth certificate and if a man is willing to legally become the father of your child then you need to call your local county court talk to someone in the family law department to see how you would go about doing this, can you make an adjustment to the birth certificate, or would he have to get a DNA test to be able to do that? You might end up having him adopt her as his child, and then he would be listed on a new birth certificate. So call and ask to see what you need to do. Also you could call a few lawyers offices and ask around, they like to give some advise because they want clients. But the family law division will guide you in the right direction as to whether or not you can just make the change. If another man is listed on the birth certificate than that will be more complicated. God bless you and best wishes.
