Are you a Malaysian citizen?
If you are, your baby will be a citizen, so will have no problems to go to school.

Dear Vivian

1. If I am not married, can I still get the birth certificate for new born baby?
The answer is YES unless you are non Malaysian Citizen.

2. Can the father name to be listed in the birth certificate for new born baby without marry?
Believe you have read thru some or most of the postings regarding this issue which have conflicting infos. The best you or your bf goes direct to JPN and enquire. Give an excuse that either side have an aged parents or grandparents who has past away not exceeding 1 year and it is customary not to have marriages within a 1 year period.
It would be logical when registering the child, both the mother and father goes there together (with/without marriage cert). Maybe the father's name would be put in the BC after making some declarations. There are changes in policies in JPN occasionally, who knows maybe nowadays CAN.

Personal opinions..
1/ If the father name is rejected, put the child surname as yours. But is is better for the father to own up to this child and face any possible consequences for bigamy or divorce from his wife. The child is innocent.!!

2/ It would be your child own self esteem when he grows up. For me, I would be more happy if I have my father's name there rather than there is a "blank" refering to being an illegitimate chld. Being a child of my father's mistress is better than "no father", for that matter, there are legal recourses too. Unless you dun want that man anymore..

There is no bigamy involved because they are not married.

@ Vivian

Our country JPN actually do not identity which is surname, only our own culture does.
Name of a person can be changed after a long and tedious process.
But why do it?
Mistakes have been made in the very first instance, do not continue with it.
The father of your child should try HIS very best and go and find ways to register his child.

You can also name your child with the surname of his/her father on birth on registration at JPN.

Child at birth, biological father do not want the child, so "blank".. If got bio father, why he cannot go and register the child? The mother can also bring any tom, dick and harry and "he" admits being the father. The name of the bio father can be inserted after some procedures are fulfilled even without a marriage certificate. The bio father MUST be there at JPN or any other man. A chinese male friend of mine got his indonesian muslim chinese gf pregnant. After birth, got his name registered, paid some fines, convert and registere marriage under muslim rites. At least he is "father" enough to own up..!! (He has 3 other children and a widower).

what's the legal recourses?
What sort of legal recourses? For what procedure? To "un-illegitimate" the child?
Get married legally, the bio or new father adopt the child legally. New documents will be issued. If a person birth cert can be alter "just like we want".. Alter it to Tan Seri So and So multi billionaire... and later divorce and claim child living expenses and live in luxury..
