no (whether or not the biological father is paying support)
No, her biological father is your father-in-law, and her stepfather is your stepfather-in-law. If you have kids, he will be their step-grandfather.
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.
No the stepfather can not go after the real father.
The biological father should give the bride away. If the bride is not close to her biological father for reasons between them then she could choose her stepfather to give her away.
If your wife was adopted by her stepfather, he would be your (adoptive) father-in-law. Otherwise, he is your stepfather-in-law, and only her biological father is your father-in-law. Also, if you have children, he will be their step-grandfather.
Not sure what a "non biological father" is, but the only thing that could happen is that the (former) payor is excused from paying future support. He cannot recover the support already paid.
Yes as long as the stepfather and mother are married for a year and if everyone in the equation agrees to the adopting.
now a stepfather can't adopt a child without the concent of the child's father

The biological father have to give up his parental rights in order for you to adopt.
His biological father was from Kenya. His mother was from Kansas. President Obama was born in Hawaii in the US. His stepfather, the man his mother married after the first marriage to Pres. Obama's biological father, was from Indonesia and Barack Obama lived there with his mother and stepfather until he went to live with his grandparents after her death.
A child does not have to have the same last name as the biological father to receive child support from that father.
No. Joseph Jackson is Michael Jackson's real biological father.
A child can only have two legal guardians, meaning the biological father would have to either give up his rights voluntarily or lose them through the court system in order for the stepfather to adopt the child.
Yes, but if the biological father is alive he will have to sign consent forms allowing the stepfather to adopt, and the mother will have to give consent, as well.
You are not the one to get child support all over again, but the man who has been paying wrongly all these year is entitled to get his money back from your biological father. He have to sue him for that. You have been paid for and supported already. If you are not of legal age yet and is entitled to child support you have to have a DNA test or something proving he is your biological father so you can take him to court so he can pay for you the years left until you are an adult.
this is a question for family court if the child was adopted, the biological father is responsible for the support of his child.
Yes , the biological father will be held legally responsible for the support of his child .
The stepfather would have standing to intervene into the custody case and attempt to be the primary custodian. Ultimately, the court will look at what is in the best interest of the child.
A biological father is the father of the child. A step-father is not. If the step-father has legally adopted the child that is not his when married then yes, he would have to pay support. If not married and the child is not his then no, he does not have to pay child support, but he may have to go to court to resolve the matter.
A step father has no legal obligation to support a step child.
An adoptive father is your legal guardian and is your father. A step father is a man who marries your mother. He does not have to adopt you and cannot unless your biological father agrees to give up his rights as a parent.
No, only the biological father will be assessed child support.
When your parents got married and had you they are your biological parents (he is your real dad), but once your parents divorced and your mother remarried then the man your mother married is your stepfather and your biological father is your real father. If you get along with both your father and stepfather consider yourself lucky. You can also have two dads if you are adopted by a family and you may not know who your real dad is, but your adopted dad who loves and cares for you is really your dad although not your birth father.
Yes-if he is adjudicated as a legal father.
