my husband has his name on his ex's son's birth certificate...him and i talked about getting his name taken off of it but he now seems like he doesnt want to cause he doesnt want the boys biological father to find out...now there is no way that dude will find out cause nobody that we know nor his ex knows that talks to him and will let him out...we r doing a paternity test to prove that he isnt the father because some people in his family believe he is but he says he isnt...i told him that i want the paternity test done and his name off the birth certificate cause it will be better for our daughter that we have now and in the long run when he asks for his birth certificate he will see my husbands name and he calls somebody else daddy...am i being wrong for telling him to do this?Answer Question

I agree with the first person. In most states the name on the birth certificate is the legal father. It doesn't matter if he is the bio father. He is responsible tor support and can get custody and visitation. If he isn't the bio father and he can get his name of the birth certificate then he needs to do so. It may be expensive and difficult to do, maybe impossible. He may have to do something like terminate parental rights and he may only be able to do that if the mother wants to do it.
