Re-Registration Of A Child's Birth
Section 17 of The Children's Act (Act No. 38 of 2005) stipulates that a child becomes a major upon reaching the age of 18 years.
This amendment is in terms of Section 11(1) of the Births and Deaths Registration Act, 1992.
These guidelines are for the re-registration of a child and the insertion of the biological father's particulars into the birth register of his child, where the child was previously registered as born out of wedlock. A Child previously registered as born out of wedlock and where the parents marry after the registration of the child, may be re-registered as born within wedlock.
Application for corrections, insertion of the biological father's particulars (where the parents are not married), change of forenames, change of the surname of a major, change of the surname of a minor, is different and the applicable guidelines should be consulted.
