Paternity Testing


Kentucky's local registrars also play an important role in the success of the Paternity Acknowledgement Program.  Specifically, local registrars contribute to the Program by:

  • Presenting unmarried parents the opportunity to acknowledge paternity after their child's birth has been recorded;
  • Providing informational materials to parents to help them better understand what paternity acknowledgement means for them and their child;
  • Assisting with the completion of forms;
  • Notarizing the forms; and
  • Forwarding the forms to the Office of Vital Statistics
