In legal terms, if you are unmarried or not in a registered partnership, your child only has one parent: the biological mother. The father or co-parenting mother must first acknowledge the child in order for them to become the child’s legal parent. The person who acknowledges the child does not have to be the biological parent. Acknowledging the child had to be done at the City Office. It is not possible to acknowledge a child that already has two parents.
You must make an appointment for acknowledgement and registering a birth.
If both parents are Dutch you can make an appointment by choosing the button: Afspraak maken
If one of you does not have the Dutch nationality, you have to call to make an appointment at the City Office for information and advice on your personal situation. Telephone (0527) 63 39 11.
