How to Establish Paternity Through the Arizona Department of Health Services?
Now I want to discuss with you how you can establish paternity voluntarily through the Arizona Department of Health Services. Under Arizona law, in order to place the name of the father on a birth certificate both parents may file sworn statements acknowledging paternity with the Arizona Department of Health Services.
When this process is used the voluntary acknowledgement has the same affect as a court order establishing legal paternity for the father. These forms are available at the Arizona Department of Health Services and at the Department of Economic Security offices around the state and some hospitals.
