Good question. I'm not really sure. Why don't you ask your doctor the next time you go for our appointment - or call the doctor's office and talk to a nurse. They should know. I do know that you can give the baby your last name if you want - it's your choice. Are you trying to get a blood test BEFORE the baby's born? Isn't that costly? Is it safe for the baby? I know it can be done, because they did it on the Young and the Restless (soap opera). LOL. Try to stay calm for the baby and best of luck.quote

you dont have to put a dads name on the birth certificate. however...if you dont put a name down, you cant get child support...so its kind of a ehhh situation lol. i'm not putting my babys dad on the certificate, but then again i'm doing adoption so its not as important. just remember about child support!quote

i didnt put my baby father on the birth certificate..the good thing about that is that you have all legal rights to your baby and he has none unless you give him rights...he cant see your baby or have anything to do with your baby..so if i were you i wouldnt put him on the birth certificate...i wanted to put my babys sperm donor on the birth certificate but he wouldnt come to the hospital and im soooo glad i didnt because by law he could see him when he wanted (not that he wants to because he doesnt) and i couldnt do anything about it but he didnt sign the birth certificate so i dont have that problem and another thing he has to be at the hospital or where ever you have your baby to sign it. sincerely brit

you don't have to have him on the birth certificate unless you want him to pay for child supportquote

ive been through this and you dont have to put a name on there, actually if hes not there to sign papers, you cant--but you CAN get child support. it doesnt matter if hes on there or not, its his dna in that baby's body. ive already gone for a dna test for my first daughter but her dad is in jail so i dunno what they will do about child support but trust me ive been through this already and im on my second baby with the same damn dude but it doesnt matter if his name is on there--but in the future if you want to change it and put his name on there, all you have to do is go to the health department and have it changed. easy as pie. buuuut...im not going to. i'm going to wait until my girls are old enough to decide and let them do it. annd in my state((atleast)) if he doesn't help you within 4 months you can file for abandonment and have his rights completely terminated..but then you can't get child support. but i'm thinking about doing that because i've never gotton help from him and someone else wants to adopt my girls.quote

im in the same situation... i dont know if its the same where u live as is it in cali... but u cant put his name on the certificate. he has 2 b there 2 sign it himself. it a new law. cuz 2 many gurls were putting false daddys on it. and u dont need him on it 4 child support either. u just have 2 take him 2 court. get a dna test. and u automatically qualifies 4 child support. if doesnt want 2 give 1 and the court knoes that then u automatically get it. and in the future if it turns out that it is not his baby they just pay him back. and u might think if he doesnt have a job how will i get it. right? u will still get it... just when he finally does decide 2 get a job they will deduct money 4rm him. i hope u due get child support i mean u didnt make the baby on ur own. i hope i helpedquote

No you do not HAVE to put the fathers name on the birth certificate, if he isn't there to sign the certificate then you cant anyway, BUT if you don't put his name then you have ALL legel rights of your child until you legally change it and give him rights through a court order , which means if you were to take him for child support he wouldn't have to pay child support b/c he wouldn't be on the certificate, but there are still ways around that if you have a blood test done through court and he is proven to be the father then things can be changed and he will have to pay child support.quote

You don't HAVE to, but if you do, that's how you get child support if he ever decides to just not take responsibility for the baby and doesn't support it, either. So you're best bet would be to do that.quote

now days...child support can be very helpful if you have to raise a child (or children) single handedly, it is not like it used to be (financially). I would put the name on for that reason alone!! It can really come as a help to you financially. you can still use your last name and not his.
even if the 'father' doesn't want any part and is being immature about it, I would still put his name on it...
if he needs a blood test to prove that is his baby too...I'd wait until after the baby is born for the blood/DNA examinations. but if you are sure the baby is his...put his name on the cert.
Tough choice though, girl. its ultimately up to you!

I didn't put my 1st baby's sperm donor's name on the birth certificate. I know who he is but I was raped. So, I left the state before he saw me prego. He's an ass. But, I came back home to Texas where I had my daughter. I have my guy (a best friend of mine who happens to love me anyway) and my daughter carries his last name, however, the people at the hospital knew my situation and he wasn't allowed on the birth certificate. When it's signed, it legally says that the signer gives up any right to a DNA test when talking about child support. And being as my daughter's name sake isn't her biological father, he couldn't sign the certificate. I don't know if that helps, but I figured I'd give u a little bit more info.quote

If he wants a blood test done, you have to do it. Sorry. He has as much right to the baby as you. But, DON"T put him on without the blood tests, k? Plus, that's how you get child support, etc. I know you may not want him in your life or the baby, but you unfortunantly don't get that choice. Hope things work out.quote
