Removal of the Assumed Father:

The assumed father or the mother may file the original DNA report and request the removal of the assumed father’s name. This must be in writing. A valid government-issued photo ID is required.

Adding the Biological Father:

Once the assumed father is removed, the biological father’s name may be added with the mother’s consent. The request must be in writing (forms available). Both parties must be present and the form must be completed in the presence of the Registrar of Births.

If the child is an adult, the child must also consent in writing to the change of father on the certificate.

A valid government issued photo ID is required for all parties.
