NEWS / Oklahoma mom struggles to obtain daughter’s birth certificate for 10 years

A woman in Oklahoma has been struggling to get her daughter’s birth certificate for 10 years. The problem is that she has not been together with her husband, but refuses to get a divorce. The way the law is written, the husband is presumed to be the father by default, and a court parentage order disestablishing the husband and establishing a different father based on DNA is necessary.

The woman experienced a multi-year ordeal obtaining a state-issued birth certificate. Her estranged husband attempted to deny paternity rights to the actual biological father of the child and there was a never ending back and forth with Oklahoma Vital Records.

As a result of the failure to obtain the birth certificate, the woman’s daughter, Willow Moss, cannot attend school.

“I’m shocked and I think about it every day and I’m still shocked,” Willow’s grandmother Lee Moss was quoted by Oklahoma City Fox 25 News as stating.

The family went as far as getting a DNA test to establish paternity only to find out that the test had to be court-ordered.

Willow had been attending school, but the school’s principal recently informed the family that she cannot attend until a duly issued birth certificate is presented.
