Make sure you have read the relevant guidance notes.
Can register the birth alone, regardless of whether you are married to your baby’s father or not. However, if you are not married to baby’s father and wish to have his details entered in the register, then he must attend with you.
If you are not married to the baby’s mother, then you must attend with her in order to have your details entered into the register.
Short - this form shouldn’t take long to complete
