It most states your husband is presumed father but he can sign some sort of an affidavit that says he's not the dad

 My SIL got pregnant after she and my brother seperated. Her boyfriend signed the birth certificate since he knew he was the father. But if he wouldn't have signed it my brother would have been legally responsible for the child. Even though he was incarcerated at the time so there was no way he was the father. And in IN you cannot get a divorce if you are pregnant.

Here he just has to sign something stating he is not the father and the bio dad and you also sign it.

In Texas (where I live) that IS true UNLESS the bio father signs an AoP (acknowledgement of paternity) and the husband signs a denial of paternity. THEN bio dad can go on the birth certificate. It also makes divorce more complicated. I had to hire a lawyer to hash out a "custody agreement" between my ex husband, baby's bio dad and myself. And all that went into the divorce papers. Your mom is right. Contact a lawyer to see what you need to do in your state.

No. She'll have to go in and fix it later when she tries to get a divorce. Btdt.

Quoting Anonymous:

In most states legally he's the father but I would fill it out with the biological father and go from there.

unfortunately she is right! this almost happened with me and my oldest. i was legally separated and just barely got my divorce finalized when my son was born bc he came early. a girl i worked with at the time informed me of it bc it did in fact happen to her! even her husband was like "hell no my name isn't going on that" and they went through a huge mess with it.
Quoting audreesmama:

In most states, yes. The legal husband is considered the father until either an affidavit of paternity is filed or a DNA test is done. The AoP should be able to be done at the hospital after delivery.
