My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.I want to make sure I understand. is your son going to "acknowledge paternity"? Will his girlfriend allow this (allow him to sign the birth certificate)?
Sorry, what do you mean if she isn't? If she isn't what?
If she is unwilling to allow him to acknowledge paternity? Then he will need to hire an attorney and file a paternity case with the court (the county court for the county where the child lives)Unless or until he is added to the birth certificate (either by the mom allowing or the court ordering) he has no rights to the child at all. But if mom refuses to allow him to acknowledge he is the dad? He can hire a lawyer and request the court order a DNA test...and if it shows he is the dad? The court will order he be added to the birth certificate
