I have created a “General Affidavit” about rescission of parentage for my estranged husband to sign. It includes:
- Name of the minor child in question along with DoB, SSN & county and state of birth The child’s birth certificate is attached as “Exhibit A”.
- I (Name of my estranged husband), being duly sworn, freely and voluntarily declare and acknowledge that I am NOT the natural father of the child named herein, and that the information regarding myself, the natural mother, and the minor child is true and correct to the best of my knowledge, information and belief.
- I (est. husband) am aware and acknowledge that my name will be removed from the child’s birth certificate and that it will be replaced with that of the natural father.
- I (est. husband) am aware and acknowledge that the child’s current surname of “xxxxxx” will be legally changed to that of the natural father.
- Notary signature area.
Is there anything else I need to cover in this pleading? Can I simply file it “as is” after he signs it? I do not need to sign it, do I? Do I need to file a Motion and Order along with it, or does that come later? Alternatively, will the Judge simply issue an Order for name change and change of birth cert? How will this proceed once this initial filing has taken place?
