Putative Father Affidavit

Friday, September 7, 2007

The filing of a man’s name in the Putative Father Registry creates a rebuttable presumption that the man is the father of the child and facilitates the man’s participation in any adoption proceeding involving that child.  The registration has no affect on the child’s birth certificate.

In order to register, the below Putative Father Affidavit may be used. There is no charge for the registration service.
