Apply for maternity recognition

Description

An declaration recognising motherhood to a child can be certified in any registry office, at youth offices and before notaries.

Recognition of motherhood shall apply only where the parentage of a child, not married parents, is governed by the law of the State in which the child is habitually resident or, alternatively, by the mother's home law.

If the foreign home law requires the mother or father to be granted maternity recognition, it will be certified publicly. The rules apply as in the case of paternity recognition.

  • If you wish to make a declaration recognizing motherhood to your child, to the extent that your home law or the law of the state in which the child is habitually resident so requires.

Recognition of motherhood can be given in any office of the stadium, at all youth offices and notaries.

  • The appreciative woman declares to be the mother of the child.
  • The registrar must examine the declaration of recognition in order to prevent ineffective recognitions as far as possible.
  • In particular, audited:
  • The identity of the appreciative, the mother and the child
  • The business capacity of the parties
  • Any previous status findings
  • The registrar clarifies the consequences of the name.
  • Recognition is publicly certified

  • Youth Offices
  • notaries
  • Registry offices

  • Recognition under condition or time determination is ineffective.
  • Recognition also requires the consent of the child if the mother is not entitled to parental care in this respect.
  • Those who are limited in their ability to do business can only recognize themselves, but require the consent of the legal representative. For incapacitated persons, the legal representative may, with the permission of the Family Court, recognise; if the legal representative is a supervisor, the approval of the care court is required.
  • For a child who is incapacitated, or a child who is not yet 14 years of age, only the legal representative can agree to recognition.
  • Recognitions or consents cannot be declared by an authorised person.
