Breaking News: Health Advisory for Contra Costa County

Last updated: November 10, 2018, 12:38 pm

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District reports that parts of our county have unhealthy air due to smoke. Please follow the following tips to protect yourself and your loved ones. Everyone, especially children, should reduce outdoor activity. Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease such as asthma, should avoid prolonged outdoor activity. Masks are not a substitute for staying indoors. Masks such as the N-95 are not effective for untrained users and may be dangerous for people with lung or heart conditions. N-95 masks may be helpful for people who must work outdoors if properly fitted. Employees should work with their employers for direction on when/how to use N-95 masks. Seek medical attention if you experience symptoms like repeated coughing, difficulty breathing, wheezing, chest tightness, palpitations, nausea, fatigue or lightheadedness. Visit cchealth.org for smoke tips and airnow.gov for air quality in your area

Adoptions or Changes in Paternity


If you would like information on how to add or change the father/parent's name on a birth certificate or how to obtain a new birth certificate after an adoption, please select from the items below.

Type of Request


Paternity Opportunity Program (POP)

For unmarried parents, a birth certificate DOES NOT establish legal paternity. A birth certificate can be used to establish the identity of the person named on it—but for children of unmarried parents, it is not the document that legally establishes who a child's father is.

It's easy to establish legal paternity without going to court—and it's free. Both parents must agree to bring valid government issued id and come in to sign the Declaration of Paternity form. Call 925-313-1125 to schedule an appointment.

For information regarding POP, please contact the Child Support Services website at www.childsup.ca.gov, and select the POP link.
