Quoting "The Boob" [HM]:" I kind of feel like, in most cases, it is a child's birth right to have their father listed on the birth ... [snip!] ... though if they don't want to. I would still try to prove paternity through the courts for child support in a case like that."
SO was put on the boys birth certificates. My sister told me not to in case we ever broke up, just put them on once we got married. That felt weird to me, like I was holding my kids for ransom for a marriage.
My dads not on my bc and it looks so empty with it's "not recorded" ont he last third of it. But he's an ass so it works out.
