a biological fathers rights to a child he has had nothing to do with ...

I was foolish and ended up pregnant to a man who didnt want anything to do with the pregnancy and still hasnt made any contact and the baby is now over 3 months. Does anyone know if there is a time period that his rights get deminished. I ended up gettin married to my husband when i was 7 months pregnant with the baby. My husband signed the birth cert. So what would his rights be if he were to try to make contact is there any time period when his rights get deminished is what i really need to know....

  • If your husband's name is on the birth certificate then he is considered the father. The only way that could change is if the Biological father asked the court to have a DNA test done. But i dont see why he would do that. If he did then he would have to pay child support.
