If the birth certificate doesn't name a father, you’ll need to attach evidence that you participated in the donor treatment together.
Each parent must complete this statutory declaration, declaring that:
- They each consented to the donor treatment that resulted in the birth of their child; and
- They were married or living together on a genuine domestic basis at the time of the donor treatment.
If your child is 18 years or over, your child must complete a statutory declaration to consent to add the birth parent’s female partner to their birth certificate.
