What is the Paternity Affidavit Program?
Every birthing hospital in the state of Iowa is required to provide information to unmarried parents about how to establish paternity. However, there is a lot of important information to communicate to parents during their short hospital stay.
Based on this, a program has been developed to help hospital employees, community organization employees, and unmarried parents to understand the importance of establishing paternity.
