No, only the biological father can sign his name on the birth certificate.
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.
Oh yeah. The biological father and mother are put on the certificate.
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.
The birth certificate can only have one father and only the biological father is allowed to be on it. And only he can sign it. A step parent have no legal right to the child.
It is possible to legally establish paternity even if the father's name is not on the birth certificate.
Except in an adoption, there is no such person as a "non biological father." The only man who should be signing a birth certificate is the child's biological father. Any other man who signs it is making an illegal statement.
If it's established who the biological father is, regardless what name is on the birth certificate, he will have to give up his parental rights in order for someone else to adopt the child. He can also go to court and have the name on the birth certificate changed to his.
When he signed the birth certificate he became the father until/unless the courts rule otherwise.
Yes you can remove a non biological father's name from a child's birth certificate and add the biological father's name. However, you must have a DNA test to disprove paternity of non biological father and another proving paternity of biological father. With these tests you can make an application (through your attorney, who would prepare the necessary paper work) to the court to remove the non biological father's name from the birth certificate. According to the law in your country, you might need the approval of the biological father to have his name added to the child's birth certificate.
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.
No. Only the biological father can sign it.
