Role of Local Registrars

Kentucky's local registrars also play an important role in the success of the Paternity Acknowledgement Program. Specifically, local registrars contribute to the Program by:

Presenting unmarried parents the opportunity to acknowledge paternity after their child's birth has been recorded;
Providing informational materials to parents to help them better understand what paternity acknowledgement means for them and their child;
Assisting with the completion of forms;
Notarizing the forms; and
Forwarding the forms to the Office of Vital Statistics
