Either parent has 60 days from the time that the AOP is recorded at the Bureau of Vital statistics to remove the father`s name from the birth certificate. One of the parents will have to file a Petition to Rescind with the court. After 60 days, one of the parents is required to prove fraud, duress or mistake of fact to have the father`s name removed. Any such suit must be filed within four years of the AOP being filed with the Bureau of Vital Statistics.
