Any attempt to vacate such an acknowledgment must be done within 60 days, unless one can prove fraud, mistake etc; please see:
Normally if there is an acknowledged bio father that is not involved in the child's life, and the step parent is involved, the step parent and mother can file an adoption petition, which will serve to terminate the bio father's rights.
The court can deem that the bio father abaondoned the child after 6 months per Dom. Rel. Law § 111.
As part of the adoption process they can change the name on the birth certificate.
I hope this helps!
