How Parents Can Rescind or Cancel a Filed Declaration of Paternity

Any parent who signed a Declaration of Paternity (CS 909) can use a Declaration of Paternity Rescission (CS 915) to cancel or rescind a Declaration of Paternity within 60 days of signing the Declaration of Paternity, unless a court order for custody, visitation or child support has been entered.

Only one parent needs to sign and file the rescission form, but the other parent must be formally notified by certified mail.

Either parent wishing to cancel or rescind a filed Declaration of Paternity must follow the steps on the checklist on the Declaration of Paternity Rescission (CS 915) to complete the rescission process.
