I am a Father and my name was never put on my child’s birth certificate. How do I get it inserted?

FatherAndSon

A father’s name may have been omitted at the time of registration due to the father’s non-appearance during the registration process. A father who is not married to a child’s mother at the time of the child’s birth is not automatically entitled to have his name inserted on the child’s birth certificate if he is not present at the time of the registration of the birth.

If you are a father and your name has been omitted from your child’s birth certificate you will need to make an application to the court if you would like your name to put on the child’s birth certificate as “Father.” If you are the mother of the child and would like to have the father’s name inserted you can also make an application to the court to have his name inserted on the birth certificate. You will need to retain an attorney to do this.
