I don't know what jurisdiction you are in. You would have to check the laws of your state to make sure. But normally you do not have a right to keep him off the birth certificate, but he would generally have to file a paternity action of some sort and have a court order to amend the birth certificate. He would then be subject to enforcement action for child support.
