Hospitals in Ohio per law have to put hubby's name on the birth certificate. You cannot sign the AOP. I have done divorces where I have brought third parties into it -- named them in the caption and the whole bit -- and it can be done. Your girlfriend can file for divorce and you can file to intervene in her divorce by establishing paternity of the child that is hers. So yes it is possible to have a third party divorce.

Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

I've removed the knife from my back, polished it, and will one day return it -- long after you think I have forgotten.
