Any attempt to vacate such an acknowledgment must be done within 60 days, unless one can prove fraud, mistake etc; please see:

https://www.childsupport.ny.gov/dcse/pdfs/4418.pdf

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.

Please see:

https://www.nycourts.gov/courthelp/family/adoptionTypes.shtml

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!

Is this a live chat? Maryland. Here is some background... My
Here is some background... My husband has been a single father to his 6 year old son since he was a few months old. The mother is not in the picture, she sees him 2-5 times a year, and she lives within 15 minutes of us. Recently, he did two at-home paternity tests on him and they both said he had 0% probability of being the father. Which we suspected because his son looks completely black/African and my husband is a fair-skinned puerto rican man. We want to know, since she is not in the picture hardly ever, and this year alone has only seen him twice (once in january and once in june) what can we do about getting her rights taken away completely so that I can adopt him?… read more
