is there a form to get a judge to sign a court order to change the dob of a father on a birth certicate?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Tennessee
the father's last name was also mispelled on the birth certificate so we filed for a Name Change with the courts, but vital records will not accept that document for the dob correction
Thank you for your question.For minor changes, such as to correct a date, you can complete an affidavit in which you state the correct date, and sign before a notary public. You should not need a court order to correct the father's date of birth. The affidavit would be presented to the Office of Vital Records along with an application, which should be available in the Vital Records office. A small fee is also required.

i have done what you stated but i recieved a letter from the vital records office of tn stating that in order to change the dob of the father on the minor's birth certificate a court order was required. i would like to file a petition in civil court to get this done but i don't know if there is a form i can use to accomplish this is a timely fashion
I see. It may be that too much time has passed since the child was born for vital records to make the correction. Each county has its own forms. Here is one used in the 30th Judicial District for the purpose of obtaining the court order:http://probate.shelbycountytn.gov/forms/MinorCorrection.pdf
