    Default Legally Married, Pregnant with Someone Else's Child

    My question involves paternity law for the State of: Wisconsin

    I am legally married but have been separated for almost 3 years. I am 5 months pregnant with my boyfriends child. When the baby is born will she be able to take my bf's last name and put him on the birth certificate? I plan on filling for divorce before baby is born but it definitely won't be finalized by the time she is born.

    By separated, do you mean you have a legal separation issued by a Wisconsin court of law or that you just split from each other? In the latter case you're still married and there's a strong statutory marital presumption in Wisconsin. To name the actual biological father as the parent, will take a court action. Your husband must be notified and a GAL appointed for the child.
