How do I remove my daughter’s father off her birth certificate?

Q: She was born in 2005, he vanished the day after she was born. His name is on the birth certificate, however. He was abusive and forced himself upon me and since she was born, doesn’t know her nor does she know him.

A: David’s Answer:
If he is actually the child’s biological parent, then you cannot simply remove his name from the birth certificate until his parental rights have been terminated. The only way to achieve this in the non-fostercare setting is to file for a stepparent adoption. If this is the approach you wish to take, call a Bronx Adoption attorney to schedule an appointment.
