Don't worry if your child’s father
refuses or fails to sign the birth certificate.
Don't worry if your child’s father refuses or
fails to sign the birth certificate. Instead, be thankful!
If your child’s natural father is not present, willing, and
enthusiastic about signing your child’s birth certificate, fill
in your own information and submit it without his input.
Although it may seem humiliating, in doing so you will have
earned yourself a piece of legal documentation more powerful
than a custody decree, and it will not have any bearing on
whether or not you are entitled to child support. Your birth
certificate will prove useful in many situations, including
obtaining your child’s passport without needing consent of his
father and proving a lack of cooperativeness on behalf of your
child’s father in the event that you should ever need to do so.
In my humble opinion: It’s best if he DOESN’T sign it!
