For couples who are not married registering a child’s birth requires both parties to attend the registry office for their names to be included on the birth certificate. If the father’s name is not stated on the birth certificate, problems in the future can arise in the event the paternity of the child is either disputed or cannot be proven, for example following the father’s death.
