Step son's birth certificate has no parents names on it could he have been adopted?
amended birth certificates which are issued after the finalization of adoption vary in details from state to state. Although I have never seen one without ANY parents names on it, i wouldn't surprise me. They usually try and make it look authentic though so the adoptee sometimes doesn't even know they are adopted. Can you ask him? Mine lists my adoptive parents as my parents, there is no attending physcians signature, no time of birth or birth details like length, weight, etc. very minimal details. Very annoying.

Could an adopted child's birth certificate be changed so they would not be able to tell they were adopted?
Yes. When a child is legally adopted the child's original birth certificate is amended by court order. The birth certificate will then bear the surname of the adoptive parents and perhaps the child's first and middle name will also be changed. Adoption records are sealed by order of the court …unless the involved parties have agreed to an "open adoption". More Contributions Yes it can, I'm adopted and my birth certificate has the names of my adoptive parents. Answer Yes it can, but the original birth statistics would be registered under Vital Statistics with the biological mother's name, but it may not show who the father is and some young unwed mother's may leave the space "father" blank or possibly even name another person as the father because they aren't sure who was the father. im adopted woppidi woop wah love santa Claus ( Full Answer )
My son's father does not take care of him My other babys father takes care of him He was there since my sons birth Can he put his name on the birh certificate if not how can he adopt my son as his own?
Answer . go to the court house, and ask to be put in front of a juge
One of the best ways to do this is to file a "Petition to Break the Seal of Adoption." Once the legal seal is broken (the fee to do this yourself - known as "Pro Se" in the legal world - is around $100) you can then get a copy of your original birth certificate with your birth parents names. There w…ill be a fee for that also, usually about $50. You will need to contact the courthouse where you were adopted (search for Family court, not criminal court - they are in different buildings in most states). Once you have the names of your birth parents, you can begin searching for them. If you are fortunate to live (be adopted in) the states of Kansas or Alaska, then there is no seal, so it is easier to get the original birth certificate. Most of the paperwork you have to file requires you to be the adopted person yourself. Unless you are an attorney, you can almost never do this for someone else. Lawyers usually charge anywhere from $2000 and up. So it probably is a good idea to do a lot of research and go "Pro Se." As I write this I am working on it myself. You probably have to be at least 18 years old. Also the paperwork and laws vary greatly - not just from state to state - but also because of the year you were adopted. Ask the Family court what forms you need and what fees and payment are required, and get them notarized. Some require you to put down a reason. The most common are to check for medical history or to establish contact. I would go with the "medical history" reason because it sounds more official, and who knows - you may actually find some medical information that could come in handy. I hope it works out for you. - Bruce S. ( Full Answer )
If you can have the biological father voluntarily sign a consent to the adoption and termination of his rights, this is helpful. Otherwise, you would need to file a petition with the Orphans Court in your county for an involuntary termination of the biological father's rights based on the PA code (r…easons can be no contact, no support, etc.).. Best to consult an attorney for the filing of the paperwork. You and your spouse (step-parent) will be subject to a federal background check. ( Full Answer )
How do you get a birth certificate if the child has been adopted and now they say there is no record of that child?
Answer . you could apply to the hospital where the child was born for the birth records, then go on from there
Answer . The emotional state of anyone who is adopted varies from one person to the next - there is no set "norm". Factors involved include whether the child knows he or she is adopted, whether he or she knows and/or interacts with the birth parent, the maturity of the child, the "stability" of …the adopted family's and birth family's homes... there are too many others to list.

How do i go about adopting my girlfriend's child if the father's name is not on the birth certificate and he has not been taken for child support?
Answer . Answer The best advice I can offer you is to get a Lawyer who specializes in adoptions. While the fathers name isn't on any papers, who knows if he really wanted to take the child into his custody, by using DNA testing if he would be allowed. Better if you see that lawyer.
I know for a fact that in Florida you can not undo the adoption or terminate your parental rights, unless someone else is willing to adopt the child. I told an attorney what my wife had told me, prior to adopting her daughter, that if I adopted her and we divorced I could terminate my parental right…s since I was not the biological father. The attorney said "she told you what, sorry". I am now going through a divorce with this woman and have been stuck with paying her child support for a child who does not want to see me nor do I wish to see. So anybody reading this before you adopt please seek the advice of an attorney it could save you thousands!!!! of dollars. Apparently your wife is allowed to tell you anything she wants to in order to get you to adopt her kid and a court does not care apparently what she told you or promised. ( Full Answer )

yes you could have tried to adopt them your first day of being a step parent. once you adopt the child, the biological father will never be required to make child support payments again.
They feel like they need to find them in order to feel like they belong again.
Probably... But the actual rights must be determined by a court pending a paternity test.
Well it depends. Some of the time (or most) someone from the adoption agency (the person setting up the adoption) will go and get the child then bring them home. Sometimes one or both people who are adopting the child may go with that person to get the child and meet the parent.
tell him/her the reason why you gave them up (e.g i was very young when you were born, too young to look after you and give you a proper life, the life you deserve, so i had to give you to someone else, someone i knew could give you a good life) tell him/her how much you care about them try and be …there for him/her don't push him/her and try and force them into forgiving you and talking to you or you will just push them away and don't stand in the way of them making their own discisions even if you think they are the wrong ones (except if they are illegal obviously) spend time with them, just you and them, try and see them as much as possible, but ask them if its ok first, the child NOT the adoptive parents hope I've helped x good luck x ( Full Answer )

How do you go about adopting your girlfriend's child if the father's name is not on the birth certificate and he has not been taken for child support and he does not want custody?
File an adoption petition and have the father testify to his wiliness to allow the adoption. But, do not be surprised to learn that he's actually been denied access to the child. Take the time to talk to him directly, and alone, before starting anything.
If a fathers name is not on the birth certificate and he has not been taken for child support and he does not want custody does he have to give permission for the child to be adopted?
It should be sought to avoid legal problems. With a 60% rate of fathers being denied access to their child, not being involved is not necessary the case. But, in Kansas, if the father did not begin paying child support during the pregnancy, he cannot challenge an adoption.

If the mother retains physical custody she can request… that the court issue a child support order. If the father gets physical custody he can request a child support order. ( Full Answer )
If you were adopted, your birth certificate was modified so that your adoptive parents are listed as your parents. If you are wondering how to learn the identity of your birth parents, start with contacting the agency through which you were adopted.
If adoptive parents lied to an adult adoptee about the birth parents rights having been terminated to manipulate the adult into consenting to the adoption can this be grounds to overturn?
Yes it can be overturned as long as you have proof that the birth parents was manipulated into giving the child up for adoption through falsified information about the parents rights being terminated. It would be a long process, but as long as you have proof shouldn't be difficult. It's strange for …the birth parents to be tricked into signing over parental rights because they have to sign an affidavit that pretty much focuses on the rights that you're signing over. So if they signed the paperwork there may be something in their that states that their rights were already terminated (which given the situation would be false) so that in itself should make it null and void. Hope that helps. ( Full Answer )
That is usually a matter of choice. Most usually if the parents are together the child usually gets the fathers family name but if they're no longer a couple then most usually the child gets the mothers name providing of course that she wants to keep the child.
Can bio-mother add step father to birth certificate without notifying biological father and step father not adopted child?
no, changing the birth certificate requires adoption, and can only be done if the birth father's parental rights have been terminated.
No, step parents are parents who live with the other parent, married or not, and who is not your biological parent or foster parent. An adoptive parent is your full parent, just like a biological one. You will inherit them and carry their name.
You can put what ever name you want on a birth certificate if you are the parent.

In Florida is it illegal for the birth mother to put the adoptive mother's name on the birth certificate?
Yes. It is illegal to falsify information on a legal document. The information you provide on the birth certificate must be accurate. An original birth certificate is issued before an adoption and it shows the identity of the biological parents. That record is sealed until opened by a court order.… An amended birth certificate is then issued with the names of the adoptive parents and that becomes the child's official birth record in the public records. . ( Full Answer )
Yes but in order for you to be adopted they have to sign over their parental rights. And only they can put you up for adoption, you can not do that yourself.
If the mother agrees, however if the father is known, it would be best to have his cooperation as he would have to voluntarily relinquish his parental rights in order for such an adoption to take place. The court will make every effort to notify the father of the pending adoption including, in most …states, publication of the proposed adoption in the newspaper. And even if the father remains clueless and finds out at a later date what happened, again, depending on state law, he may still have the right to petition the court to have the adoption declared null and void if he wishes to reclaim and exercise his parental rights. You need to consult with an attorney specializing in family law in your state of residence, lay out all of the facts and get an informed opinion. There are just too many variables to give a detailed answer on such a complex issue on an internet forum. ( Full Answer )

Could an adopted child's birth certificate or passport be changed of his father's name in Muslim laws?
By Islamic law you can not be adopted, just raised by another family staying on contact with the biological one. I suggest you ask an Imam about this or if the biological family agrees to it.
No - they simply list the names of the biological father andmother. A birth certificate does not prove the parents were marriedat the time the birth was registered.
Yes. You should not place Mr. anywhere in your son's name or it will become part of his legal name. It is unnecessary and silly to use Mr., Miss, or any such other title on a birth certificate.
UK birth certificates DO show the names of both parents (whereknown). If a child's father is in dispute, the word 'unknown' isinserted in the space for Father.
