Fathers name on birth certificate
Asked Feb 18, 2008, 09:40 PM
Through DNA, my brother is the father of the child. At birth the mother did not put his name on the birth certificate because she did not know if he would step up and take responsibility. I'm proud to say, yes he has and doing an fantastic job. The child is now two years old and my brother was told by the mother she is not sure if she will put my brothers name on it.
My question is, can he have his name put on the certificate? If so, please explain procedure.
Also, what gives her the right to decide if his name is on the certificate.
