I downloaded the Declaration of Paternity (CS 909) form from the POP web site. Why does it say “SAMPLE ONLY” on the form?
• The Declaration of Paternity (CS 909) form is a multi-page legal form with witnessing requirements; thus the official form only can be obtained from authorized agencies (see below). A sample form is provided on this website for informational purposes but it cannot be used to acknowledge paternity. You can request the Declaration of Paternity form by sending your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
