Hi all mummies, just want to check, when you register for baby do you have to provide both parents IC? or marriage cert is sufficient. can baby take mother's surname? i on separation terms with my husband.
Thanks. if i dont't take any maintaince from my husband and he shall not have the access to the baby. he agrees to it so there's a problem if the ICA ppl or KK ppl insist that the baby father to produce ic. i won't be able to find him as i dont even know where he's staying right now. if i dont't put father name in the birth cert baby will be term as illegitimate child becoz i'm legally married to him and have not divorce just on deed of separation. quite frustrating... = (
i called kk to ask they insist on producing both parents ic.
then i called ICA, they say it's the requirement that both parents ic have to be produced if not the birth cert can't be done. worst thing is i'm married to him and he's the natural dad he have to go down to do it.
he said if he's going down to do it he wants to claim the visitation right of the child... it's hell... means i've to keep on hassle with him... = (
hmmm..but will kk know if you are married if you do not produce the marriage cert?
Mayb you let them Kandang Kerbau Hospital or ICA knows that both of you are on seperation at the moment & he is nowhere to be located? see what they say? if worse case, no choice then you got to add his name on BC.....
If he wants visitation rights its oke, but he got to pay for maintainence of the child too, tell him tht.....and see what he says
yes KK will know. when i register at KK they've already got the information and ask him to come down for blood test.
i called KK and ICA they say he need to produce his IC and he needs to be present when doing the BC. as we are separated not divorce he still have to do all this personally...
if i take his maintaince money i would have to hassle with him for the rest of my life... thought it'll be better if we could draw the line clear...
But on grounds that you are seperated and the hubby nowwhere to be found, cannot put your name & baby's name on BC?
can but baby will be term as illegitimate child. cause in the eyes of law i'm married to him by not putting his name in the BC baby will not be eligible to have CDA acct and edusave etc... but i find s'pore law very weird. put both parents name in but y cant follow mummy's surname???
i'm not sure about putting only mummy's surname in the BC, but for my girl her BC has both daddy's & mummy's surname. We intentionally did it this way (we have some reason behind it) and no eyes were raised nor questions asked by ICA
For me.. I'm in the same situation with you.. Am on seperation terms with my husband.. and i wont give him any access to my baby..
So I checked with my gynae, at Mount A.. he said it's ok if i doesnt want to indicate my husband name on baby's birth cert..
Hmm.. Not very sure about the complications too..
Coz i saw in other forum that some of the mummies gave birth n cert does not have their father's name as they happen to be not around at the moment and what they do is to go ICA to add in father's name..
Omg.. after reading your post, i think i better go check it out with my lawyer... SIGH...
