An Affidavit of Admission of Paternity is a document wherein the person signing the affidavit acknowledges that he is the father of an illegitimate child. An illegitimate child is a child whose parents are not legally married to each other.
Under Philippine laws, acknowledging an illegitimate child allows the child to use the surname of the father, to be entitled to support, and to inherit from the estate of the father upon the father's death.
How to use this document
To complete this document, the birth certificate of the child whose paternity is being acknowledged should be available in order to check that the correct information concerning the child is entered in the document, specifically, the names of the child and the mother, the date and place of birth and the place where the birth is registered. The birth certificate of the child should also be attached to the document as a reference to the child's birth.
Once completed, it should be printed in at least 3 copies. Since this document is an affidavit, it should be signed and sworn to before a notary public.
The Family Code of the Philippines is the primary law that governs marriage and family relations in the Philippines. On the other hand, affidavits are governed by the 2004 Rules on Notarial Practice. It should be noted that making false statements in an affidavit may be punishable under the Revised Penal Code.
