Court Denies Petitioner’s Request to Change Parent on Birth Certificate

Petitioner claimed that the man named on her birth certificate was not her father, but that an Italian national was her biological father. Petitioner sought to amend her birth certificate to remove the name appearing thereon so that she could assert rights in this man’s estate, in Italy. The court in Italy would not consider her rights so long as her birth certificate was not changed. This court refused to do so, finding that petitioner failed to establish facts sufficient to overcome the information on her birth certificate.
