Hey Ladies,
My question is if a bialogical father isnt on his childs birth certificate and does not see the child, and the Mother has full custody of the child, does the bialogical father need to be notified some how If another man wants to addopt the child and become the childs father?

Question is from ONTARIO? I dont know if anyone will know how that works... Please let me know what you think and maybe what steps should be taken?

I have herd that the bialogical father would need to be notified and have to sign over all rights? But if the bialogical father doesnt have any rights how is he going to sign over rights not having any?
Thank You.

Thanks Anne,
We are not married yet but we were talking about after the wedding how he wants to adopt her because he loves her and she calls him dad, once we get married and my last name gets changed then he doesnt want her feeling like she is less family becuase she wont have the same last name as us..... He is an amazing man and loves my daughter very much, they have this bond that I cant explain... Im just wondering if after the wedding if Im going to have to track her bialogical father down and get him sign something or take him to court or something so my husband can adopt her.... I was also thinking that becuase He has been her father for as long as she can remember and he is the only father she has ever known if that will make it easier and less of a fight becuase Her actual dad never made the effort to be involved in her life
thank you for your comment.

I don't know is the short answer. But I respect your decision, or rather the step-dads decision. In my experience, children whose step-father adopts them do better than those whose step-fathers don't bother. Respect, and blessings to you all.
