You would have to start with an adoption in probate court. There you would have to let the father know of the intent to have the baby adopted and give him an opportunity to object. He would have to prove paternity. As I am talking about an adoption, you really would need an attorney because of the complexity required to make it clean. Please contact me if I may assist you.
