Call the records department at the hospital you'll be delivering at or your town clerk's office and find out what the policies are in your state. This is one of those things that really varies from state to state as far as how much info is needed from Dad, especially when the parents are unmarried it is handled differently in every state.

 the answer to your question as far as the birth certificate goes, the faters info thta they will be wanting is His name of course, Date of birth, birthplace, and adress if it is different than yours.

  I have a copy of the form from both of my daughter in thier baby books, this is for oklahoma, i am pretty sure it is universal for all states though.


 As far as wanting him on the birth cert. i believe that is totally up to you. It is your child together it is a decision that you need to make together.


 As far as age differance goes as long as it is not anything thta is against the law then i wouldnt worry about it.   IT is not like they are going to arrest him.
