Make Your Baby's Introduction Official: Register and Name Your Little One!
When a baby is born in Northern Ireland, it is important to register the birth within 42 days. Fortunately, the process is relatively straightforward. In this article, we'll provide detailed information on how to register a birth and everything you need to know about the process.
To register a baby in Northern Ireland, you can visit any District Registration office. To make the process easier, you can find contact details for your local office on the Northern Ireland Direct website. Once you have the necessary contact information, you can visit the local council website to learn more about how to register a birth.
During registration, the registrar will provide you with an Infant Registration Card (HS123), which you can use to register your baby as a patient with a family doctor or GP practice. Under new regulations that came into effect in March 2022, certificates for new registrations can now be produced with headings in Irish or bilingual English and Irish. When filling out the birth registration form, you can choose to receive certificates in English, Irish, or bilingual English and Irish. The certificates you receive will be in the language format you select and cannot be changed.
Who Can Register a Birth:
In Northern Ireland, several individuals can register a birth. If the mother or father is married or in a civil partnership, either one can register the baby. Similarly, if the mother or second female parent is married or in a civil partnership at the time of donor insemination or fertility treatment, they can register the baby. Unmarried parents can register the baby together. However, if one parent cannot attend the registration, they can get in touch with their local registration office for further guidance.
In situations where a female couple is not in a civil partnership, the mother must register the birth. Nevertheless, the partner's name can still be registered if they comply with the agreed female parenthood conditions outlined in the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008. Both parents must be present to sign the registration form.
Documents and Information Needed:
To register a baby, you'll require the assistance of a registrar. You will also need a fully completed birth registration form that has information such as the full name, sex, and birth date of the baby. Information on the district and place of birth of the baby and the full name, birth date, occupation, and address of the parents is also essential. It's important to fill out this form carefully because birth registration cannot be changed after completion.
Re-Registration and Correction of Birth Certificate:
In case of an error on a birth certificate or a need for correction, a form for the General Register Office must be completed. The correctional form will notify the General Register Office of the needed correction. In the event that a birth certificate needs to be re-registered, a form GRO 12 is necessary if the court has issued a Declaration of Parentage under Article 31B of the Matrimonial and Family Proceedings (NI) Order 1989 or Parental Responsibility Order under Article 7 of the Children (NI) Order 1995.
Furthermore, if the child’s parents have signed a Parental Responsibility Agreement under Article 7 of the Children (NI) Order 1995 in court, then the father and mother should fill in form GRO 12 and send it to the General Register Office together with the agreement. Note that court orders and agreements should be either stamped by the courts or your legal representatives as a true copy of the original.

Double-checking all details, filling out forms carefully, and ensuring you comply with the agreed conditions will assure that the registration process goes smoothly.
