Birth Certificates Name Changes & Paternity Laws
How Do I Change Child's Name On Birth Certificate?
For example, when doing a legal test, you must not use a friend, neighbor, co-worker etc... as your witness. We also provide the names and address of every state’s vital statistics office so as to help our clients change name on birth certificate.
What Happens When A Child Is Born In The Marriage?
When a child is born in a marriage, the name of the husband is automatically added on the birth certificate. The husband is typically considered the father of record. In order to change name on birth certificate, if he is not the father, you will need to contact the vital statistic office in your local city and state to file for a change. This will also require that you perform a Legal Paternity Test as evidence of the biological relationship.
What if the mother knows the husband is not the father?
Even though the mother may feel/know that her husband of record is not the father of her child, the state will require legal DNA testing. This would serve as the biological proof that another man is in-fact the father before changing the name on birth certificate. In some cases, the husband may likewise wish to have his name removed from the record of birth, and would similarly need to do the same thing.
Do I need a lawyer to change the child's name on birth certificate?
No!, the process to change the child's name on the birth certificate can be quite easy if no one contests the fact of who is the father, and does not oppose the action. You just purchase a legally binding DNA test from us and we can deliver notarized, accredited results both ways in both electronic (email) and written results. Then just simply fill out the vital statistics form, send it back along with a copy of the results, and pay the small fee that is charged by the vital statistic's office.
