When you say you have full custody - can you provide me with some more information - is there an order? how old is the child?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
how much is this going to cost me , ie every time i ask you a question am i going to be billed .
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 2 years ago.
You are only going to be billed for what you have paid. When you say you have full custody - can you provide me with some more information - is there an order? how old is the child?

so it makes no difference what the age of the children are i can do this without the mothers intervention and how long does the 26 pounds i paid last .
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 2 years ago.
If the mother is refusing to support you being added to the birth certificate then you would need a court order - this is also very simple - but it would simply confirm parentage. Basically that you are and were the father.

so in your expert opinion i can add my name to the birth certificate , regardless of the time that has passed and it needs no intervention from the mother or permission .
