How to get a copy of an Acknowledgement of Paternity?

Normally, an Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP) form can be filled out and completed at the time of birth at a hospital. In the event, an alleged father does not complete the AOP form at the hospital. The father/parent depending on the state may have up until the 21st birthday to complete the AOP form.

If for any reason you may require a certified copy of your Acknowledgment of Paternity form. The recommended option is to contact your state’s Vital records department to inquire about their requirements and fees associated with the entire process.
