child with UNKNOWN father in birth certificate

Arresto Menor
Good day!
I had a child out of wedlock and when I was still young. It was 1994. In the hospital where I gave birth, it was put on record that my child's father and I were not married. Few months after I gave birth, my child's father and I got separated. But, before that separation, all I knew was my child's record has been submitted to the LCR. When my child was about to enter school, I went to the LCR to et a copy of my child's BC, only to find that there was no record. I went to the hospital where I gave birth, i got a record which shows that they put UNKNOWN on the father's name. I asked them why. They said that it's because the child was illegitimate and couldn't use the father's surname. So, my child started using my surname. It was only last yr that I went to NSO to get her a NSO cert, no record was found again. I went back to the hospital again, the record was not submitted yet to the NSO. I insisted that the father's name to be put on the field provided for. I wanted it that way for the sake of daughter. They said that if I put his name, my daughter would be obliged to use his father's surname which I found unfit because all my daughter's record were under my surname. Is it not possible to put the father's name, just put it and never asked him to sign the BC. And keep my surname on my daughter's BC. My daughter in the first place doesn't want to use her father's name. Though she acknowledged her and she knew him. But, she grew up with ill feelings toward her father because she never received any support from him, financially and emotionally. But, I never asked her to hate her father. In fact, my daughter has been very closed with her relatives to his father side. Pls enlighten me with this. I don't see the point of putting UNKNOWN in the father's name even if i consent to it.

Thank you and God bless...
