Child Welfare Officers
In case of separation, parents of minor children reach agreement on child custody, residence, right of access and maintenance. The child welfare officer can help the parents to draw up agreements and make sure these are in the best interests of the children.

Acknowledgement of Paternity in Neuvola
Acknowledgement of paternity will be done primarily at maternity health clinics (neuvola) and secondarily at the child welfare supervisor’s office. Expectant parents are informed of acknowledgement during a visit to the clinic. Paternity can be acknowledged after the 30th week of pregnancy. The father acknowledges his paternity personally to the nurse in the presence of the baby’s mother and with the mother’s consent at the maternity health clinic which the mother has been visiting.
