My question:

How can an Illegitimate Child get his legitimate status? Both parents are Malaysian, non-Muslim and they are not in time for married registration due to some reason.

This illegitimate status will auto wear out in time to come once the child has grownup and has his own MyKad, Passport, Driving Licence. It will not show up again in any official government documents.

Even if the parent marries after the child is born, this status remains inside the birth certificate. Law of birth is there.

Will the illegitimate status prevent the kid from going to government school / hospital?

1. You can only legalize his status when both of you register your marriage.

@Wilson_Kuek,

1. You can only legalize his status when both of you register your marriage
My questions:
1.  What happens if the both of them did not marry in the end?
2.  The child then becomes an illegal child?
3.  What is the process to legalize this child if eventually they gotten married.

Can you elaborate further for the readers here to understand better?
