no, because you have to have a parental permission and a law agreement so they know its okay to go.
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.
No, only the biological father can sign his name on the birth certificate.
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.
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.
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.
Of course, this is the case if the bio father dies before the birth of the child. The only father at the time of birth is the biological father. You cannot adopt a baby before birth - so the adoptive father signing a birth certificate, at birth, is probably not binding. And the bio father, if he is aware he is a father, must sign adoption papers. The biological father has rights under most circumstances (barring criminal activities and such) if he is aware that he has a child at all.
The father can request a DNA test through the court.
Yes, unless you have proved to the court that you are not biologically the father.
No. It is not legal nor appropriate for anyone who is not the biological father to sign as such on the child's birth certificate. A birth record is a legal record and to purposely report false information is fraud.No. It is not legal nor appropriate for anyone who is not the biological father to sign as such on the child's birth certificate.

No. If the father can prove that he is the biological father (with a DNA test) then he can legally have his name added to the birth certificate with or without the mother's permission.
That depends on state law where you live. Where I live, if the man has reason to believe he is indeed the biological father, he can petition the court of jurisdiction for paternity testing to establish it. Once he has been established as the biological father, he can file a motion to amend the birth certificate based on the same.
No, it is not illegal to put the wrong name on a birth certificate. However, the biological father has the legal right to add his name to the birth certificate if he can prove that he is the child's father.
Usually the father has to have permission from a court or judge to do so.
Not yet, but I'm working on it. Another year or two.
Yes, it can be changed after paternity of the biological father has been established by the courts, you fill out a change of birth certificate affidavit and send it in with your court documents to the bureau of vital statistics stating who the real father is and the birth certificate will then be changed.
The biological father must agree to the accept parentage or parentage must be established through the court before the birth certificate can be amended.
You haven't explained whose birth certificate. If it's her biological child then she must sign the birth certificate. The biological parents of the child sign the birth certificate.
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.
Not if it's court ordered. If another man signed the birth certificate and the mother knew he was not the biological father she is guilty of fraud. The father can ask for a court ordered DNA test to prove he is the biological father and she can not refuse this. He can then proceed to get his name on the birth certificate and also get visitation, pay child support and petition for custody.
No - they simply list the names of the biological father and mother. A birth certificate does not prove the parents were married at the time the birth was registered.
