What is an Acknowledgment of Paternity?
An Acknowledgment of Paternity is a document that is signed by unmarried parents to establish the child’s legal father. Both parents must voluntarily sign.
Who can sign it?
Before signing an Acknowledgment of Paternity, you may wish to speak to a lawyer. You have a right to seek legal representation and supportive services, including counseling, to help you decide whether to sign the Acknowledgment of Paternity.
You CANNOT sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity if:
• The mother was married at any time during the pregnancy or when the child was born;
• The mother is unmarried but more than one man could be the child’s father; or
• The child has not been born.
DO NOT sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity if, after reading this written notice and receiving oral notice, you have any doubts about the child’s paternity.
What effect does signing an Acknowledgment of Paternity have?
An Acknowledgment of Paternity that has been voluntarily signed by both parents has the same legal force and effect as a court order determining the child’s legal father and establishes the duty of both parents to provide support for the child.
This means that if the Acknowledgment of Paternity is not challenged, you do not have to go to a court or administrative proceeding to determine or confirm the child’s father.
When a man signs an Acknowledgment of Paternity:
• He gives up his right to a court hearing to determine if he is the child’s father;
• He may establish custody and visitation rights;
• He may be required to give his consent before the child can be placed for adoption;
• It establishes the child’s right to inherit from the father if the Acknowledgment of Paternity is filed with the registrar in the district where the birth certificate was filed; and
• It may establish the child’s right to inherit from the father if the Acknowledgment of Paternity is only filed with the Putative Father Registry.
The child may have the last name of either parent. The child’s name will not affect the child’s legal status.
