My kids dad name is on a birth certificate even though he did not sign it. He says the mother signed it without his knowledge but a paternity test was given and the child is not his but she has his last name. What can he do about it to take his name off the birth certificate?
The person on the birth certificate may file a suit to disestablish paternity. His name may be removed from the birth certificate after the Judge determines that he is not the father and orders it removed. He should seek assistance from an experienced family law attorney to resolve this matter.
