Rest assured, unless you son's father filed papers in the court to legitimate your son, and the Judge signed off on the legitimation, your son's father has no legal rights to your son. Hopefully this helps you breathe easier! From the facts you state here, you should consider filing to terminate your son's father's parental rights. If that was successful, your current husband could then pursue a step-parent adoption of your son. Even though your son's father has no legal rights to your son, your husband couldn't adopt him until your son's father's rights were terminated. Hope this helps!
