Acknowledgement and the Dutch nationality

A father can acknowledge a child if he isn’t married or doesn't have a registered partnership with the mother. If the mother has a female partner, this partner can acknowledge a child if she isn’t married or doesn't have a registered partnership with the mother. If the biological mother isn’t Dutch and the father or female partner is Dutch, the acknowledgement can have consequences for the nationality of the child.
