What If The Mother Is Married To Someone Other Than The Biological Father?

Even if the biological father signs the AOP, he will not be named on the birth certificate or be the legal father unless the mother`s husband signs a Denial of Paternity. If the husband does not sign the Denial of Paternity, the biological parents must either visit a Child Support office or go to a private attorney to file a paternity legal action.
