    In most states, yes. The legal husband is considered the father until either an affidavit of paternity is filed or a DNA test is done. The AoP should be able to be done at the hospital after delivery.

    Most states assume that the husband is the father. I think there is something you can do though. I would talk to a lawyer if I were you.

    In the state of TN that is true. Some mothers refuse the information at the hospital where you add the fathers name. Either way it will take a court order. If you get divorced in the divorce decree have the judge specifically state that your ex is NOT the father and order Vital Records to remove him from the certificate. 

    I used to work for Vital Records in amendments so I know what I am talking about.

    In some states the legal husband of the mother is legally considered the father of all progeny she gives birth to

    Most states I know of the husband has to be listed on the birth certificate.

     In most states. My brother was able to avoid it when he got divorced because his ex was upfront that it wasn't his child.

    Not true. I had this issue with my ex husband. He had to sign a form called "denial of paternity" then my DF (now husband) had to sign as well we brought it with us to the hospital. Super easy. I got it from my attorney.

    But, you can give that child any name you want.

    It really does depend on the state you're in.
