Certified Copies of Paternity Documents

To request a certified copy of one of the following forms filed with the Office of Vital Records:

  • Recognition of Parentage (ROP) or ROP revocation
  • Spouse's Non-parentage Statement (SNPS) or SNPS revocation
  • Husband's Non-paternity Statement (HNPS) or HNPS revocation
  • Declaration of Parentage (DOP) or DOP revocation

Fill out the Application for a Certified Copy of a Recognition of Parentage, Spouse’s Non-parentage Statement, or Revocation Form (PDF)

A certified copy of any one of the forms above costs $9. Rush processing and/or rush delivery are available for added fees. If our office cannot find the requested form, we will let you know by mail. Payment is due with the application and is not refundable; OVR no longer invoices child support offices.

We fulfill most requests within a few days of receipt, although the availability of OVR staff affects processing time.
