    You can call your local child support enforcement agency for a paternity acknowledgement form and it can be done that way. Both parents need to sign this form and sign in front of a notary. Be sure to have photo id with you as well.

    I'd be surprised if the child support agency is the way to go in Indiana. particularrly since you are now married I would assume there's no order in place.

    It is likely you will need a DNA test to confirm paternity. Then check with the dept that handles birth certificates about the way to make a correction.
