I am single, Chinese girl and I have some questions as below:

1. If I am not married, can I still get the birth certificate for new born baby?
2. Can the father's name to be listed in the birth certificate for new born baby since we are unmarried parents?
3. If the father is a foreigner, what are the procedure and documents needed to get the birth certificate for new born baby?
4. If I register the baby in Malaysia and the father is a foreigner, will the baby become a Malaysia citizen or obtain the citizenship of the father? Or dual citizenship?
5. If the mother is not married and has baby, what is the marital status for the mother? Is she still considered single or otherwise?
6. Will the baby face any problem in the future for example study and anything else because the parents of the baby are not married?

My child is 8 years old now.
Am I still able to launch a successful paternity lawsuits?


Yes. Can.
You need to locate the father, make sure he is not poor and prove that he is the father.

Who has any idea of the Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) office that allows adding father's name to birth certificate of illegitimate child? 

Secondly, I'm a foreigner currently married to a Malay so I converted to Islam. I had an encounter with a Sarawakian christian girl once which landed in pregnancy ,I called JPN Sarawak today to ask about the child registration without marriage although I didn't tell them I'm married to a Malay and they were not too interested in asking about my status rather the officer was more interested in confirming if my girlfriend is currently  married to someone else and I said she's single. The JPN staff said if so then I should be able to add my name to child birth certificate but I must be present there with my passport and fill in the statutory declaration form then they will add my name.

* I also wanna ask can the JPN detect that I'm married to a Malay? As my passport bears Christian name.

* Has anyone here been able to deal with this kind of scenario?

Why do you want to insert your name?

Why did you marry your Muslim wife? Is it for the Spouse visa?

Can you help with the latest law in Malaysia 2019?

Unmarried couple, father is Malaysian and mother is from the Philippine. Can the new born baby certificate record the father name and can the baby be Malaysian? The mother agrees to transfer the baby to father.

Sorry, if I'm still single and am pregnant...
1) Can I still go to the government hospital for check-up?
2) Is there such document that a single mother needs to apply before the baby born? Where can I apply those documents?

@Icelyn

1.  Yes, you can
2.  No documents need to be applied for. After the birth of the child, the hospital will issue some birth documents. Bring them straight to Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) to register the birth after you have the strength to go. Just state your status as single in the forms issued by JPN. Your child will be Malaysian citizen.

As I'm reading this thread, I want to post a question of my current scenario.

I am married but in the middle of a divorce petitions. Got pregnant recently because of planning to reconcile. However things do not seem to be moving as we plan and still decided to push thru with the divorce. 

My question is can I register my baby as a single mother as I'm still in the middle of divorce petition? Any unfavorable problem will arise give if I do not include the father’s name in the baby birth certificate?
