I was married but separated when I got pregnant with my now 3 yr old. My husband and I remained together. His name was listed on her birth certificate but I was unsure if he was her father or another man I had dated. When she was 3 months old a DNA test was done by the courts and the other man was found to be her biological father. She wasnt quite 1 when we got the results. He has known for almost 3 yrs that she was his but he never tried to change the birth certificate. Now he is petitioning Vital Records and taking me to court for custody.My question is if anyone knows.... Do I have to remove my husbands name from her birth certificate? He has been her father and taken care of her since birth.

Actually, it will be the judge's call if the name gets changed or not. But as far as the father filing for custody and such, he has every right to try to do so. He is her bio father and has the right to have some relationship with her or other.
