Service Description

The regulation, which came into force on 15 May 2013, gives parents the opportunity to have the birth documented by the Registry Office (“Standesamt”) and to give the child a name.

However, there will be no certification in the register of births, marriages and deaths.


For further information (submission of the necessary documents, responsibility), please contact the Maternity Department at the Registration District Central or the Registration District Höchst (see above for contact details).
