Basically i need help. I was wondering if it is illegal to put a man on your child's birth certificate if he is not the biological father. This is the only way i can think of that is going to stop my daughter's dad from getting any custody of her. Ever since she has been born he has not paid for her and hasn't been in her life. He is extremely violent and is on drugs. I have suffered constant harassment from him with him threating to hit me. And i don't want him to be near my daughter. I have tried to apply for an injunction but it was turned down., if he gets custody i fear she will be taken away from me as he has previously had he's son taken away from him and his ex partner,. `my daughter calls her godfather her dad and looks at him as a father figure. but would it be illegal if i was to put him on her birth certificate?
