The laws regarding the fathers name on a birth certificate are straightforward.

1. If the woman is married, her husbands name automatically appears, regardless of biology. He is the legal father. If there is a question, a paternity action can be brought and the fathers name amended if it is not the husband biologically.

2. If the woman is unmarried the father has to fill out the acknowledgement of paternity to have his name appear. He can wait and have DNA done if he prefers. Then the courts will order his name added.

3. If the child is adopted, a new BC will be issued.

This varies from state to state. In many states, the mother can name the father and the father is completely unaware.

Actually it doesn't. No unmarried woman can name a father without his consent. Certainly not in any US state or Canada. (Altho in Canada the husband isn't automatically named as in the US).

Incorrect. Absolutely incorrect.

A father must be aware of, and consent to, the naming of himself as the father of any child on a birth certificate. Nobody can name a father on a birth certificate without his full knowledge and consent.

I challenge this "storageguy" person to name those states he refers to.

As per my knowledge, your friend will not be able to remove the father's name from the birth certificate. She can only change the name of the child only under the permission of father.

unregistered. If your a legal adult and have children you have the right to control who is in your childs life. Taking your fathrs name off your birth certificate does nothing at all. he is still your father and their grandfather. What makes him a POS? I believe, and being a grandmother i firmly believe that grandparents need to be in their grand childrens lives as long as they are a good influence. My grandchildren have a pair of grandparetns that are real POS's. But they still see them. Not my doing of course. But the kids love them and thats all they know. They arent old enough to understand what they are. And no one should ever try to turn them against any one.

You'd be much better off spending your time getting an education so you can communicate like a human being instead of a neanderthal.

This "should have" blame game serves no purpose. The child is here now. We have to live in the reality that is here and now and stop living in "should have" land.

The only thing you accomplish with your ridiculous responses is to show the world how psychologically damaged you are.
she choose him, now she has to live with that choice-wether she wants to or not.in the future she should choose more carefully who she decides to have unprotected sex with.

The mother names the father of the child if he is not present for the birth. The doctor fills out the "certificate of Live Birth", with the mother as source of the information.

The best things for a woman to do when unmarried is to not name the father at the hospital that way when the loser is up to his old tricks he doesn't have rights. Better yet,move away when you find out your pregnant

A birth and one's biological roots cannot be undone just because one parent wants it. As to not knowing the nature of someone before bedding down with them, that's one's own fault. People should know one enough well enough and long enough, like a year or more, before they decide to marry and THEN have children -- not just lay down with no commitment to each other than to make each other feel good -- for the time being. It's not the popular thing nowadays to delay having children until after marrying and having some standards, first. But this forum shows the sad results of bearing children with no forethought as to who and how, what is required to raise them properly.

No, one cannot "take a parent's name off a birth certificate." The Dept of Vital Statistics issues the birth certificates from the Certificate of Live Birth submitted by the attending physician.

A biologiclal parent will be a biological parent for the child's entire life, regardless of the wishes or the other parent -- or even stepparent adoption. For abuse, neglect, parental rights can be terminated. A child may be adopted by a stepparent. But the child will eventually want to know the other parent, his or her roots. And will usually look the person up as an adult to form their own relationship with that person, not just accept what they were told.
