Insertion Of The Biological Father's Particulars Into The Birth Register Of His Child Where The Parents Are Still Not Married
Section 17 of The Children's Act (Act No. 38 of 2005) stipulates that a child becomes a major upon reaching the age of 18 years.
These guidelines are for the insertion of the biological father's particulars into the birth register of his child, previously registered as born out of wedlock and where the parents are still not married.
This amendment is in terms of Section 11(4) of the Births and Deaths Registration Act, 1992.
Application for corrections, re-registration of a birth, change of forenames, change of the surname of a major, change of the surname of a minor, is different and the applicable guidelines should be consulted.
The following documentation is required:
NB: Quote the applicant's full name, surname and date of birth as well as the postal address in the email. The form will then be posted out. Alternatively, phone the Mission.
Fees Applicable: Non-refundable fee of AUD 8.00 per application.
Personal cheques or credit cards are NOT accepted. Incorrect payment will not be accepted; in case of incorrect payment the cheque or postal money order will be returned to applicant.
