Rescinding a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (VAP)

Rescinding a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (VAP) is the process through which a previously signed VAP is declared null and void.


A VAP can ONLY be rescinded within 60 days of its being signed, OR 60 days after a different court case concerning the child has started, such as child support, allocation of parental responsibilities (custody), or parenting time (visitation rights) – whichever occurred first.
