Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. Were you aware at the time that you registered the child's birth that this man was not the biological father? How old is the child?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
You will need an approved DNA test to show that he is not the biological father, or evidence of the actual biological father. You can find approved DNA test clinics here: https://www.gov.uk/get-a-dna-test/if-youre-getting-a-test-to-use-in-court
Then you will need to contact the registrar where you registered the child's birth to find out how to send in your application - at present it is likely to be by email.
This is the application form you need: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/753718/Application_form_to_remove_the_details_of_a_wrong_father_from_a_birth_registration_v3.0__2_.pdf

Sorry, can I just confirm you actually saw my response to your original query?
You can apply for an NMO on form FL401 - no court fee.
