NC Birth Certificate Policy Updated to Include Same-Sex Spouses for Female Couples
Thanks to the work of the ACLU of North Carolina and attorney Sharon Thompson, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in North Carolina has updated their policy regarding birth certificates to include the same-sex spouses of some married couples. The new policy allows the same-sex partners of married women to be listed as a parent. Important Note: Neither birth certificates nor legal marriage necessarily establish legal parentage. Read the ACLU of NC’s Frequently Asked Questions about this new policy.
