We’ve been to court to determine the father/second parent or to get child support. What do I need to do to get the second parent listed on the birth certificate?

If you have already been to court and determined paternity/parentage or established child support, you will need to mail our office the certified court order. We will also need additional information on the father/parent 2 including:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth
  • Highest level of education
  • Social Security number
  • Race

Once we have the request, we will review it to make sure that the court order is in compliance with state statutes and regulations. At that time, we will notify you if additional documentation and/or fees are needed.
