I thought that Lithuanians can travel to the US for up to 3 months on a visa waiver program?

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Yes, he was here 2 years ago for two months, but he went back to Lithuania and he ask for visa in ambassy and they said no, and after that he can not use that non visa program any more...
Family Lawyer: Alex J. Esq., Attorney at Law replied 6 years ago
Ok, generally for a child that is born in NY, an unmarried father who is not present in the USA at the time the baby is born is unable to sign a birth certificate.

However if the father signs and notarizes/obtains appostile for Affidavit of Paternity, he can be added to the birth certificate.

You can find more information on this official NY link:
