The following data are recorded in the birth register:
the first names and surnames of the child,
place, day and hour of birth and the sex of the child,
the first names and surnames of the parents
at the request of one of the parents, his or her legal affiliation to a religious community that is a public corporation.
mother of the child is the woman who gave birth to the child.
In the case of a married mother, the father of the child is the husband. If the child is born after the husband's death, that husband is considered the father, provided the birth occurred within 300 days of the husband's death. If the mother is divorced and the child is born after the divorce decree has become final, the former husband is not considered the father of the child.
If the mother is not married at the time of the birth, a man can only be entered as the father in the birth certificate if he has already acknowledged paternity. Otherwise, the competent authority enters the father subsequently in the birth register.
