Husband to adopt son

I recently got married( like a week ago). But i have been in a relationship with my husband for over 4 yrs. My son is 5 yrs old and he has only known my new husband as his father. I had DNA on my son and found out his bio father but he has had nothing to do with him for his whole life. So I was wondering if I need his bio father to sign over his rights so that my current husband can adopt him. And I also wanna know how long we have to wait in the state of Florida for my current husband to adopt my son.

I wish to inform you that the only way for your husband to adopt your son is if the biological father consents to terminating his parental rights or is unfit to be a father. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance in the matter.

The bio father might be very happy to do so since it means he will no longer be responsible for child support.
And you could seek support payments at any time currently.
