My wife had a baby and the baby is not mine, I signed the birth certificate before I found out, the babys father wants to change the baby's last name to his last time, when this is done, am I no longer legally responsible for the child.

Just by changing the child's name does not do away with your obligation to support this child. You must have your parental rights terminated to no longer be responsible for child support.
