I want to seek your advice regarding my case.
I want to ask if it is alright if I sign the birth certificate of the child of my girlfriend.
She's pregnant and due this month but I'm not the father. The father already left her long ago.
Due to many circumstances we broke up 2 years ago and just got back together recently after I've pursued her. (I already know she's pregnant when I did that.)
We are planning to get married this year. Now, I would like to take full responsibility for her child as the father. I’m planning to have the child use my surname.
Is it alright to sign the birth certificate and acknowledge the child as my own?
Thank you for your time.
