He essentially give up everything. The child is no longer his legally. He has no responsibilities toward the child and has no visitation rights.
None. The biological father has lost all rights when the new father adopted the child.
A child's biological father can have his name added to a child's birth certificate regardless of whether or not the mother agrees to it. If the biological father voluntarily relinquishes his parental rights and the child is legally adopted by another man, his name can be added to the birth certificate in place of the biological father.
If his biological father gives up his parental rights, yes then he can if he wants and if the judge agrees.
If he has adopted her then he is her father and has all of the biological fathers rights transferred to him at adoption. If adopted yes
Yes, adoption terminates the parent child relationship of the biological father, so unless the biological father had a will, the child is not legally his child.
If the biological father relinquishes his parental rights and the court agrees and allows the adoption to proceed.
If the "step-father" has adopted the child, then the step father has all the rights that are normally afforded to a biological parent. If the "step-father" never adopted the child, he has no more rights legally then someone walking in off the street.
He would have all of the rights that a biological father has. If he was not the biological father, then his name should not have been put on the birth certificate in the first place, unless he adopted her and the birth certificate was changed.
No. When a child has been legally adopted the parental rights of the biological parents have been terminated and they have no rights regarding the child.
Adoption means the legal father of the child is not the biological father. By giving up the child for adoption the father gave up all rights pertaining to the child. In court the adoptive parent will be the victor.
Yes, unless the child has been adopted.
In most adoptions, the rights/responsibilities of the biological parents are terminated.
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.
Yes, if a court terminates the biological father's parental rights on the grounds that he is an unfit parent, or the biological father fails to appear for hearings on the matter.
If you are adopted, your biological father has no legal standing. And there is no requirement that any parent sign a wedding certificate. If you are underage, you may need signatures to obtain the marriage license and it would be the adoptive parent that would have to sign.
Who legally adopted the child?If the mother's new husband legally adopted the child, then the biological father's parental rights had to be terminated first. Which means that the biological father is NOT obligated to pay child support anymore. The new adoptive father has taken on all rights and responsibilities for the child.
Yes, the courts want to see that a father has taken finical responsibility for a child and if the biological father has forfeited his rights through adoption, the adoptive father is now the responsible party, NOT the biological father through the eyes of the court.

Marriage by itself does not bring custody rights to non-biological children.

Yes. They Do. An adoptee has the same legal rights as if they were biological child in a court of law.
By Canadian Law if the mother of the child purposely did not contact the biological father and she married and her husband adopted the child and the biological father found out then yes, he can take you to court. If he can prove he's reliable, holds down a good job, is not into drugs and contributes to society then yes, he can have some rights. It will take a court of law and two lawyers to fight this one. The bottom line is ... "What is good for the child?"
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.
