If you signed a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Parentage (VAP) form and want to undo it, you have to sign a Rescission of Voluntary Acknowledgment of Parentage form, have it witnessed, and send it to the Department of Health and Family Services (DHFS). DHFS must receive the form within 60 days of the date the VAP was signed.
If you wait longer than 60 days, it will be very difficult to undo a VAP. You must go to court and prove that you only signed because of fraud, pressure or threats ("duress"), or an unintentional mistake ("material mistake of fact").
