Fathers name on birth certificate

Biloxi, MS |
Filed under: Birth certificate

my son died 2 weeks before his daughter was born. they were not married yet. and because of that they would not put his name on the birth certificate . is there any way we can get that done. it has been 18 years and his daughter would like to have his name on it.

  1. I do not believe that marriage is a prerequisite to being placed on the birth certificate. I would call the Dept. of Vital Statistics in Jackson, MS and ask to speak to their legal department.

    The state of Mississippi does not certify lawyers in any specific category of law and the decision to hire an attorney should be taken only after careful consideration. Jeff Padgett's profile and any answers to questions given is strictly for the purpose of advertising his services.
