lol... I have never heard of such a thing, what about those unfortunate women who have no idea who the father is.. or single mothers? No, not at all. A man does not need to be present for the birth certificate.
Now, if you want the baby to have his last name then yes, I'm pretty sure he does have to be there. Otherwise the baby would carry your last name.

In my state, only mom actually signs the birth certificate. For dad's name to appear on it, you either have to be married or dad has to fill out and sign a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity. A birth certificate can be signed with the dad's name blank. But I am sure it varies from state to state.
