  • If the parents aren’t married, and father’s details must be recorded in the Register of Births, both parents need to be able to sign the register.
  • In the event that the father not able to be present at the office with his wife, however his information needs to be entered into the Register of Still-births, he may sign a statutory declaration that acknowledges he is the father to the baby. The mother is required to present this declaration at the request of the Registrar.
