    Post Taking Name Off of a Child's Birth Certificate

    My question is simply but weird. I just got DNA results back stating I am not the father. How can I get my name off the birth certificate? The child is 4 years old and will be 5 in May 2011.

    Depends on the state you're in.

    Were you married to Mom?

    OK, you still haven't answered the question of how paternity was established to begin with. Did you formally acknowledge paternity through legitimation?

    Regardless, you're going to have to go to court. You'll need to file a petition in the county in which the child lives to disestablish paternity based on mistake of material fact - namely, that genetic testing shows you are not the father. The court will order another DNA test. After the court disestablishes your paternity, you'll need to have the birth certificate amended.
