German Law/Must a father's name be on German birth certificate?


Gia wrote at 2014-07-15 05:56:20
If a child's birth certificate has no father listed can the mother go after the biological father In The future for child support?

Example: mother doesn't list a father and when the child is 5 years old can the mother open a paternity and child support case against him?
