my husbands ex had a baby while he was incarcerated. before she had the baby she got married and the man she married signed the birth certificate. Now its 2 years later and the child is adopted out to the mothers dad. My husband is about to take a DNA test to find out if it in fact his child because if it is he wants to be a part of his life. Does he have any rights to this child after it being adopted out if he finds out it really is his child?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help today - Has he taken the parenting DNA test and been shown to be the biological father?

No

He is about to. Just wondering if hes got any rights past that. After an adoption. If he is.. He was never given the opprotunity to decide about this adoption.

Yes, as the biological father he has substantial rights. Especially if those rights were not told to him when the child was born. He would be able to file motions in family court for parenting time/decision making and even custody. But it does all hinge on if he is actually the biological father.

Ok great. Because at this time the mother. Who does not even have custody anymore is trying to say IF he is the real father he can only go visit when she goes to her visitation and I just felt this is not right if he is in fact the father.. He was givin no opprotunity to make any decisions about this adoption.

get the test 1st and go from there?

That is correct - start with the test and move on from there - can you please rate my answer with 5 stars
