My son passed away on 7-5-08, his girlfriend just gave birth to his daughter on 2-21-09. The social worker at the hospital (Kaiser) is telling us that our sons name cannot be on the baby's birth certificate. We live in California. The girlfriend is very upset and is refusing to sign the certificate without his name on it. Both families want the fathers name on the birth certificate. Is this right, can they do this? Due to delivery complications she is still in the hospital (mom). What can we, or her, do about this?
