My questions would be the ff:
1. Can the mistress put the name of my husband as the father in the child's birth certificate, even if he doesn't consent to this?
2. If my husband decides to support the child even if his name doesn't appear as the father in the birth certificate, will the child be entitled to my husband's estate in case of my husband's death?
3. If my husband consents to putting his name in the birth certificate as the father, then this means the child would be entitled to his share of my husband's estate? This is what I am afraid of.
I want to protect my children's inheritance so I would be agreeable to him providing support but would like to forbid him from acknowledging the child as his by allowing his name to be placed in the birth certificate. In this way, my children's inheritance would be safe and the illegitimate child would have no legal claim on the estate. Is my assumption correct?
