A married couple are having issues and the husband decided to file divorce, only to find out the wife is pregnant.

However, he insists in continuing with divorce process.

The issue is, when the child is born, can he choose not to be present at the child's birth registration, assuming the contested divorce legal is yet to be completed?

Are you...
1. The father?
2. The mother?
3. The Child?

Do tell the truth.. this is not a play play scenario and what you want?

The answer is listed below in the website.

It does not matter whether it is an unfinished contested divorce or completed dekri nisi absolute. 
Even if both have been divorced for 2 years, it can be re-contested again with regards to the custody of a child. The marriage is over for both spouses but custody matters can continue.

Who exactly are you, standing on which side of the divide? 3rd party?

@jeff005,

Thank you for your info. Does it mean that it is not an option for him not to be present during the registration?

What if he has no intention of going after the custody of the child at all, and hence not even wanting to be present at the registration in the first place.

Without his name in the birth cert, does it mean the custody of the child belong to the wife, solely?

Then put his name in the BC and make him responsible for the child living and educational expenses till the child is 18 years old.
Why.. the child is not HIS..??

Without his name in the birth cert, does it mean the custody of the child belong to the wife, 
Yes and No depending on circumstances.

How does a man deal with a legally married wife, pregnant with child (do not know whose), who ran away and in hiding? How to be present at the child's registration? How does Jabatan Pendaftaran Negar (JPN) deal with this type of cases? The ex wife could easily says that the husband is now working overseas or even missing for a few months. Lies of course.
