Once a child is born with only the mother listed on the certificate, a father may be added through the correction process.
If a mother is not married at the time a child is born and has not been married any time during the preceding 10 months, both biological parents must complete and file the Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP) (PDF) packet. The parents may also establish paternity by court order. For more information about making changes or corrections to an Arizona Birth Certificate, please review the Birth Corrections page for more information.
Our Deputy Local Registrars are also available by telephone to assist you with further questions, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at 602-506-6805.
