I have a daughter that is 15 yrs old and I put the father's last name in her birth certificate without consulting my ex husband. My ex husband is not the father and we never keep in touch since we separated and get divorce. He doesn't know about my daughter and I don't have any intention to find him.Now how can my new husband can adopt my daughter ?

If you were married at the time of you pregnancy to your ex husband then you will need to have his rights terminated no matter if he is the father or not and no matter if you were separated or not. So you will need to contact him. You will also have to contact the bio father and his rights will need to be terminated. Then your new husband will need to have a home study done.
