I need advice and haven't been able to get it from CSA, BD&M, or Law Access.
My name wasn't put on my son's birth certificate because his mother and I weren't certain of our future together. My son is now 4 years old and I've been the primary carer for three of those years.
Not being on my son's birth certificate makes life difficult, especially when I have to complete paperwork (daycare, doctor/hospital visits, Government agencies, airplane tickets). His mother initially agreed to updating our son's birth certificate and changing his name, but has done her best to avoid filling out the paperwork for BD&M for almost 7 months. She's become unresponsive to discussions about the topic.
I'm not sure what options I have for proceeding without the mother's involvement or if I can legally compel her to comply with my request. I'd like to know if any one here has been in this position and what actions they took to resolve the stalemate.
Thank you very much.
