My question involves paternity law for the State of: Georgia
The name listed as "Father" on my birth certificate is my mother's, now deceased, ex-husband. He knew he was not my father - they both knew who the father was - but he wanted me to have a name (I read something earlier that that was fraud. That isn't my problem at the moment.)
I recently found my biological father. What I want to know is, by someone else's name listed as the biological father, does that mean that I was adopted by that man? My mother was married to him for 20 years before I was born. They divorced a year and a half after I was born. They never went through any sort of adoption process. The only people who know that I'm not his child are close family and a few friends.
Also, how would I go about (should I want to) suing for retroactive child support from the man who *is* my father? He's never even so much as seen me in 30 years and knows I'm his child. I believe in the state of Georgia there is no statute of limitations. I assume it to be correct since I got it from a government website.
