Acknowledgement of Paternity
When children are born to parents who are married to one another, paternity is automatically established, but for children born to unmarried parents, paternity must be established. This is typically accomplished by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity (LDSS-4418) form in the hospital after the birth of the child.
Due to Covid-19, many hospitals were forced to limit or restrict visitors. As a result, children born to unmarried parents may have gone home without having their paternity established.
For this reason, a tutorial titled “Acknowledgment of Paternity: How to File from Home” was created to assist parents in establishing paternity for their children. By clicking the link below, you can access the tutorial, which will explain:
- How to complete the form
- What it means to sign the form
- Where to file the form
- Who to contact if you have questions
