Q: Father didn’t sign birth c but when child support papers came here checked yes for wanting to be added,did they add him
How do I know if they added him or not
A: That depends on whether the paternity matter and child support matter are completed or not yet. Typically there is a process involved and it's not immediate. It's relatively inexpensive for you to simply order a new copy of the birth certificate from Vital Statistics if you wish. Best wishes!
A: If you aren't sure whether there is a named father of your child's birth certificate, you may want to order a new birth certificate to be sure and to make sure you have a copy of your child's current birth certificate in your possession.
You can also call the child support office and they can likely tell you whether they see a father is listed on your child's birth certificate or established by court order.
