Can’t my ex put my last name on the the baby birth certificate?

Q: hi my ex says i got her pregnant so when she gave birth she put my last name on the babys birth certificate and one i didnt sign no paper there were mine and right now i was tested recently for a dna because i aint sure if there mines and we were never married or anything.

A: Your ex listing your name on the birth certificate – assuming it was accepted that way – would not be enough to presumptively declare you to be the father. She’d additionally need for you to execute an Acknowledgement of Paternity. Call a Bronx Child Custody attorney for more info.
