Paternity Opportunity Program (Pop)

Unmarried new parents may sign a paternity form at the hospital immediately following the birth of their child. This form is called a Declaration of Paternity. Signing of this form by both parents will legally establish paternity when it is filed with the state. Parents may also sign a Declaration of Paternity after they leave the hospital. Check with your local FSD or local child support agency for more information or see the POP section of this article.
