Best Answer

By signing the birth certificate, he accepted legal responsibility for the child. If he wants to escape legal responsibility now, he'll have to have it proven by medical testing that he's not actually the father. * A paternity test is not relevant as the male voluntarily signed the birth certificate knowing it was not his child. He can file a termination of parental rights petition whether or not it would be granted would be determined by the specific circumstances of the matter being addressed.
