Wynn v. Superior Court of Fresno County, F056975

Trial court order denying plaintiff's petition for an order correcting her original birth certificate is reversed where: 1) plaintiff qualifies as an interested person who may bring an action to adjudicate her parentage, and thus the trial court has the authority to adjudicate the facts concerning a possible biological relationship between mother and daughter; and 2) the trial court has the authority and the obligation to order the issuance of a new birth certificate if its determination of the existence of a biological mother-child relationship differs from that shown on the child's original birth certificate.
