Full Name of Father in the Birth Certificate

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

Hi, in the birth certificate, do we need to put the father's full name even if he does not recognise the child? I understand that we cannot use their surname.

It depends on where you live. Also it makes it easier to claim child support and you should claim it even if he doesn't want to see the child.
Ask a lawyer in your area for advice that will suit you.
