Some of my clients have recently approached me with questions regarding parenting, signing birth certificates and establishing parenting rights. The article here is informational and not a legal advice.
Father Establishing Parenting Rights In Arizona:
- He and the child’s mother signed the child’s birth certificate.
- He was married to the child’s mother at any time during the ten months before the child’s birth.
- He was married to the child’s mother and the child was born within ten months of the marriage’s termination.
Arizona requires that you sign a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity before you can sign the birth certificate.
Important notice: For women: If you are dating and you and your boyfriend knows that he is not a biological father of your child, him signing a birth certificate is a legal action that may be considered fraudulent.
