Here's the deal. My boyfriend of five years has a nine year old daughter. When she born her mother put her new husband on her birth certificate. Now her mother has some serious medical problems and because my boyfriend is not on her birth certificate we don't know what they will do if her mother passes. They will probably give her to the guy on the certificate. Right?? See my boyfriend has his daughter all the time. Her mother isn't denying paternity. Can anyone help. We live in California.
