Mexican Law/Legitimation in Veracruz


I'm an attorney, trying to find authority for the principle that when the father signs the birth certificate, the child is legitimated.  Child was born in Veracruz in 2000, registered in 2003.

Sorry to bother you - I just can't find any authority for this. Appreciate any help you can give.

Dear Barbara,

You will find your authority in the "Código Civil del Estado de Veracruz".

If you wish, for a fee of US $300, I can prepare a legal brief for presentation before a family court in the U.S.

I can respond to any question related to Mexican Law and common business practices in Mexico. I can also compare and contrast between the American and Mexican legal systems.
