    I am an unmarried biological father of a child, the mother filed a child support action against me and i filed a counter petition for paternity and to establish shared custody. Now she is married and wants the stepfather to adopt the child. i never registered with the FLORIDA PUTATIVE FATHER REGISTRY, as I didnt know this was an option. We have all agreed to the adoption of the child by the step father but unsure if my consent would be needed in this situation since i did not file with the FLORIDA PUTATIVE FATHER REGISTRY, or is that a mute point because she originally filed the child support action and i filed the counter petition for paternity and custodty.

    You are legally father since the state signed off on the child support. You will be required to sign paperwork to allow SD to adopt the child.
