Section 3705.10 | Delayed birth certificate.


Any birth certificate submitted for filing eleven or more days after the birth occurred constitutes a delayed birth registration. A delayed birth certificate may be filed in accordance with rules which shall be adopted by the director of health. The rules shall include, but not be limited to, all of the following requirements for each delayed birth certificate filed on or after July 1, 1990:

(A) The certificate shall be accompanied by all social security numbers that have been issued to the parents of the child, unless the division of child support in the department of job and family services, acting in accordance with regulations prescribed under the "Family Support Act of 1988," 102 Stat. 2353, 42 U.S.C.A. 405, as amended, finds good cause for not requiring that the numbers be furnished with the certificate.

(B) The parents' social security numbers shall not be recorded on the certificate.

(C) No social security number obtained under this section shall be used for any purpose other than the purposes specified in division (B)(1) of section 3705.07 of the Revised Code.
