Hi there, Hi there I have a question regarding the family law act. What happens when you can't register a new birth to get a birth certificate for your child because the mother died during childbirth and didn't elect who the father was? Despite me telling Births, Deaths, Marriages Victoria that I am the father, they are still refusing to accept my declaration and are withholding the registration. What are the processes involved? What sections of the family law act could I use to prove my parentage (without having to put my child through a dna testing)? I am at my wits end. Please help!
