    No. You would be committing perjury. An acknowledgment of paternity is a legal document and swearing falsely is perjury. If the bio father challenges your paternity there could be trouble.

    Marry your girlfriend and adopt the child.

    No. That would be a fradulent act. Is the bio father not on the birth certificate?
