How do I add my child's father to the birth record?

What do I need to do?

To add the father to the birth record you need to re-register the birth.

Re-registration is the completion of a new record of birth, which replaces an original registration.

A birth may be re-registered to include the details of the natural father where the parents were not married at the time of the birth, have not married since and no father's name was recorded at the time of the original registration.
