My question involves paternity law for the State of: Alaska
A woman from my husband's past contacted him recently claiming that a child she had 10 years ago is his. When she was pregnant, my husband asked her if the baby was his, but she said no. She had been having an affair with another man and thought the child to be his. This other man was on the birth certificate and had been paying child support for the last 10 years. Well, she recently married another man and approached my husband saying that her new husband and her wanted to adopt the child, but couldn't do so without establishing paternity. The thought-to-be father took and test and it came out negative. She is now trying to remove his name form the birth certificate and add my husband's. My question is, if he is indeed the father, is he required to register his name on the birth certificate? If her new husband does want to adopt him, then why would they be motioning to add my husband's name to the birth certificate? I feel like something isn't adding up, but maybe I just don't know enough about paternity law. She is very deceitful and I am concerned about her intentions. Thank you.
