ok so i am here in New York. George is in Saudi Arabia.

Before i left Saudi we went to the american embassy to citizen services and George filled out a general affidavit stating he is the father of the baby and wants his name on the birth certificate. it was notarized by the Consular at the embassy and Georges signature and mine are on this form.

Well here in NY apparently both parents must sign the birth certificate worksheet packet in order for the fathers name to be included on the birth certificate. problem...George isnt here and cant be here.

I called the clerks office in the county he will be born in and they said they are pretty sure that the affidavit we have will not hold up and the only way to ad his name on the birth certificate is if we went to court later.........ummmm George cant come back here.

So big problem...if his name isnt on the birth certificate....We cant file or register him for his Lebanese citizenship...and even bigger problem, George can not apply for a visa to Saudi for him. BIG PROBLEMS.

i dont know what to do.

everything ive found online suggests that if the parents are married at the time of birth the husband is recognized as the father of the child...but other things i have seen say he must be present to sign. im confused and so down hearted right now. i just wish i could get on a plane and go back now and just deliever him over there.

George is calling the lebanese consulate here in ny as well as the lebanese embassy over there. they are ding bats over here so im not putting to much hope in what they can do for us.

I am leaving it in Gods hands because if i dont, i will go crazy.

i have no idea if they are included......i would assume the birth certificate would have to be amended after the father arrives...in which case he can sign after he arrives...................

On second thought lets leave this here in MENA......

Seems strange. I know with my son and daughter, I wrote in everything and sent it off myself......ex didn't sign a thing. Maybe it differs state to state? Wishing you all the best Jess

Yep it differs by state from what ive been told. My ex had to sign at the time Daemian was born....

I talked to my grandmother and she told me she will take me up to the clerks office tomorow so i dont have to try and explain this situation over the phone.....soooooo hopefully we can get something figured out tomorrow...but im not holding my breath.

Each state's laws are different. I know for a fact in Texas and Kentucky if you are married the husband's name will go on the birth certificate. In Kentucky even if it is later proven by genetic testing that your husband is not the father he is still considered the "legal father" and the state will not pursue any action against the biological father.

I would look on the internet for the laws specific to your state to see exactly what they are. I don't understand why an officially notarized statement would not be accepted by the department of vital records even if done outside of the hospital.

Maybe even contact the hospital to see if there is a form they use to Acknowledge Paternity that will be accepted since they are the ones who send the paperwork to the vital records department of your state.
