Good day.. I have a 2 year old son born outside of marriage. His biological father acknowledged him. Now, I'm married and I want to change my son's surname from his biological father's surname to his step-dad's surname.

Can my husband adapt my son? Is his biological father included in the process? Please include an overview of the process.

Thank you very much.

Yes, you can have your son be adopted by his step-dad.

Contact a lawyer for specific and detailed advice. Adoption is an in-court process. The biological dad may oppose but of course it always depends on the merits.

kailangan po ba i-inform yung bio-father? Not in good terms kasi. Since the boy was born, wala talaga siyang support. For almost 3 years, he only visited his son twice.

Yes, especially if the son carries the name of the biological father.
