  • Removing fathers name from birth certificate

    My daughter whilst married to her ex underwent IVF through a sperm donor with ex's consent. Her ex never bonded with their son and now 3 years after their divorce he is asking for his name to be taken off the birth certificate.


    My daughter is more than happy to agree as she now has a long term partner who would like to adopt her son in the future when they get married.
    I believe that where it can be proved by DNA that the "father" on the birth certificate isn't the biological father that there name can be removed from the birth certificate, but does the same apply with sperm donor ship where her ex signed to agree that he took on the legal responsibility for "their" son.


    If it is possible what does she need to do to move this forward? Thank you in advance for any advice.

              Hi Philip1988,
              I’m not sure it is quite so straightforward to ‘remove’ the fathers name once it is on the certificate in this situation.
              It would be for your daughters ex to prove he did not agree to the IVF using a sperm donor. This may explain the situation more clearly. Unfortunately most of the information out there relates to the sperm donor rather than the married father wishing to be removed. http://www.alternativefamilylaw.co.u...perm-donation/
              The sperm donors name can’t be inserted instead, it appears. I suspect a Court order would need to be obtained to remove the ex, so the father would then be unknown. However if the ex ‘consented’ to the IVF with a sperm donation, I’m unsure how successful this would be for your daughter.
              I can see the issue for the Court, if he agreed at the time, should he then be able to backtrack and walk away from his responsibilities to the child? I doubt it.
