If the paternity or co-maternity case is processed by the Agency for Family Law [Familieretshuset], the mother has a duty to state who the child’s father is or may be.
The form can also be used in cases where the mother has been treated by assisted reproduction.
You must complete, sign with MitID and submit the application digitally.
You must have this information and documents ready when you complete the form:
- Name and preferably Central Population Registry (CPR) number and address of the possible fathers or co-mothers.
To the extent that you have been treated by assisted reproduction, and a man must be the child’s father or a woman must be the child’s co-mother, you must enclose either 'Consent and declaration of paternity or co-maternity in assisted reproduction (Sections 27 and 27b of the Children Act)' or 'Consent and declaration of paternity or co-maternity in assisted reproduction (Section 27a, subsections 1 and 2 of the Children Act)'. You will find these forms at the link Declarations of consent.
Once you have completed the application and signed with MitID, the case is created in the Agency for Family Law.
After completing and submitting the application, it can take up to 24 hours before you receive a receipt in Digital Post.
