    Adding father to birth certificate
    I want to add my daughters father to the birth certificate... We were together and have been together since she was born, but when she was born things were rocky so I didn't put his name on there. We have been together for 10 yrs and we are now married. My daughter is 9yrs. Old and we want her to have his name and make it completely legal for her sake. Will a acknowledgement for paternity affidavit work in this situation? We don't want to put her through a DNA test. How can I do this and make it as easy as possible for our daughter.

    What state are you in? While it would be nice if just his acknowledgement would work I can easily see a judge ordering the DNA test just because for whatever reason he didn't sign at birth.
