What will happen when my child is adopted by my soon to be husband?

I have a 2 year old and I want to one day get married, can my husband adopt my child so he will have his last name? Will my child's biological father still be responsible for child support when this happens? I am trying to cut all ties with him!!

His name is NOT on the birth certificate, and he is not active in our child's life and does not care to be.

From what I know yes your husband will be able to adopt him. Are you getting child support now? My situation was different but in my situation my husband adopted my oldest after we got married and we had to change her name to his name. My ex had to sign away his rights which he did after a few years. And he is responsible for her child support up to the date that the adoption was complete.
