When an applicant states that the child is illegitimate or other information indicates
illegitimacy, obtain a full birth certificate (BC) (one with spaces for parents' names).
If only a BC without spaces for parents' names is available (e.g., because the State
does not issue full BC's), document this on the MCS RPOC screen or on an RC in non-MCS
If you are developing written acknowledgment or court action, see GN 00306.100E.2. If you are developing under the "other satisfactory evidence" provision, see GN 00306.125. If you are developing the child’s relationship to the mother, see GN 00306.055B.
