Legal consequences of actions that you may take:
--- If you use the biological father’s surname, this can be used as evidence by your husband in filing a case of adultery against you and the biological father.
---If you inform the Local Civil Registrar that she is physically separated from your husband, the LCR will not allow you to register the child under the biological father’s surname because of Articles 164 and 167 of the Family Code.
---You can claim that you are single and then either leave the entry for the name of the father blank or use the biological father’s name; in this situation, you can potentially be charged with perjury.
---If you use your husband’s surname for the child, your husband can file a case of damages against you and you may also be criminally charged for simulation of birth certificate.
Whatever the wife does with the child’s birth certificate, there are adverse legal and practical consequences.
