The process the State uses to add the father to his child’s birth certificate when the parents are not married.  Mother and Father must come in with a current ID to begin the process. The declaration is then sent to the State to correct the birth certificate.

Affidavits for Correction

The back side of a birth certificate is used as the affidavit to correct any errors that may exist on the birth certificate.  Mother and father must come in with their current ID to fill out the affidavit and get it notarized to send to the State HD for correction.

If father is not listed on the certificate, the mother and one of her immediate family members must come in.
