In this article, our Winnebago Coutny paternity lawyers explain the establishment of paternity by consent at birth.
When children are born to patents who are unmarried, hospitals and midwives are required by the Illinois Vital Records Act to provide the parents with the forms that allow the parents to simply and easily establish paternity by mutual consent, assuming that both parents agree. These forms include:
