Acknowledgement of Paternity in Neuvola

Acknowledgment 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.
