Important notes

Documents required

Please ask when making an appointment, as this can vary depending on the situation. Appearance in person is required.

Please note

Declarations of custody can only be submitted in the youth welfare office (also possible before birth), paternity acknowledgments are accepted by both the youth welfare office (also before birth) and the registry office in connection with the birth certificate (see link - birth certificates newborns -).

In principle, all notifications to be carried out in this context can be carried out at any youth welfare office in Germany. Alternatively, these declarations can also be submitted to a notary.

Responsibility within the youth welfare offices in Hamburg is based on the child's surname and, in the case of counselors, also on the registration address.
Before the birth, responsibility is based on the mother's surname.

The same procedure applies to children who were born abroad , with the difference that the care register in Berlin is kept centrally for all these children. The contact person for all youth welfare offices and embassies is:

Senate Department for Education, Youth and Family
III B 44
Bernhard-Weiß-Strasse 6
10178 Berlin.
