Please help me to solve an issue. A boy, 16 years old and governed by Hindu family Law for all purposes lives with his natural mother and step father,i.e. the newly married husband of his natural mother. In some testimonials , esp. in some school documents, the name of his natural father has been written as his father cum guardian. After that his natural parents got divorced and his natural mother remarried. Hereafter the said child started to write his mother's name only whenever he was required to fill up the blank- Son of (S/O)-. What options are available to him here after? The questions are as follows:
1. Whether the step father can still adopt the child?
2. Whether, the child can continue with only his mother's name without any future controversy or challange?
3. Whether ,simply the child can write his step father's name without any future dispute?
4. Whether the child need to write the name of his natural father?
