How to remove father's name from birth certificate after the child has been adopted out who is not the biological father?

Jackson, MI |
Filed under: Family law

In 2011, I signed my name on a birth certificate as the father and the child was put up for adoption. She has since then been adopted. I am not the biological father. How do I remove my name from the birth certificate now? Does the mother need to consent to the removal of my name?

  1. Once a child has been adopted a new birth certificate is used with the biological parents removed.
