WHen you fill ou t the paperwork for the birth certificate they ask you who the father is. It's your choice what you tell them. If the person you are referring to accepts p[aternity as well and signs on the dotted line at the same time you do - voila - that person is the father and no one knows any different. They do not test for paternity UNLESS the real father decides to claim them and then he has to sue for it. You must wait until the child is born before adoption can take place. The baby isn't considered legal until it is born and since anything can happen between now and the time the baby is born, waiting is a good idea anyway.

What is the procedure for your husband to adopt your unborn child from a previous relationship?

It can be very complicated depending upon the laws of the state in which the couple reside and whether or not the biological father disagrees with the adoption. If the child is a result of an affair during the marriage, the court rarely intervenes if the husband accepts the child as his own, even if the biological father files for parental rights. If the child was conceived out of a relationship before the woman married, then no action can be taken until the child is born, parentage is established and the biological father voluntarily relinquishes his parental rights. If the biological father forfeits his rights to the child, the couple can petition the court for the husband to legally adopt said child. A biological parent CANNOT be forced to give up his parental rights to a child except by a court when it pertains to matters of abuse, neglect, etc. Please be advised, this is the basic legal procedure, exact information pertaining to the issue should be obtained from an attorney licensed to practice family law in the state where the couple reside.
