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.

yes,i think your husband can adopt your child.Without notification, the father can challenge. The man need not have ever signed or seen the birth certificate to still be ordered to pay child support.


If you are not the child's parent (biological or adoptive), you should not be paying support.This fully depends on the circumstances. If you were married at the time of the birth, you can. There's current a New York case where an ex-husband pays child support to the mother whose now married to the biological father.see links below


If you are married the husband is automatically considered the father so then no DNA is required but if not married the father have to provide DNA test in court in order to prove paternity and he can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support. Just signing the birth certificate will not hold up in court since the birth certificate does not require DNA testing. This is to prevent the wrong man paying child support. Only the biological parents pays for their child.


If she can prove paternity, there might be some child support due. But, the husband would be the legal parent, if his name is on the birth certificate.


if they are married the money should be shared, it is not his or hers, it is theirs, so the husband should technically support his wife

Yes, if by DNA you are determined to be the biological father.


Yes..My husband has a court ordered child support and he is Not listed on the birth certificate of his Son.


Yes , the biological father will be held legally responsible for the support of his child .



In many jurisdictions, the husband is presumed to be the child's father unless paternity is established by other means. The biological father would likely be required to pay child support even if the mother is married to someone else.

Your ex has to continue paying child support. Marriage doesnt change anything because your ex is still the biological father. Unless youre husband adopts your child ... thts a different story.


Well of course it would be the other mans child regardless of whether you are married or not.Clarification:In some states, the husband is legally considered the father, even if he is not the biological father, and is financially responsible for the child. There are also some states in which the biological father has to pay child support to the mother, even if she is still married to her husband. So you really need to check on your state's laws concerning this.



You will have to file with the original court to have the child support order lifted in light of the new evidence. In some states however if you were married and or signed the birth certificate you are legally responsible for the child regardless of biological relationship.


Yes, unless you have proved to the court that you are not biologically the father.


So what relationship are you to the parent or the child? If you were married when the child was born, you are assumed to be the father. Unless someone else is listed on the birth certificate, you're going to be expected to support the child.


The biological father can legally have his name added to the birth certificate at any time, unless he has signed away parental rights and the other man has legally agreed to adopt the child.Regardless of whose name is on the birth certificate, the biological father is still required to make child support payments.



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.


When he signed the birth certificate he became the father until/unless the courts rule otherwise.


No, and neither does a biological father, if they are not married to the mother. These are the stipulated provisions of the laws in the United States. Only through application to the courts for permission does is a man granted any such rights, even while under a child support order. see links
