When unmarried women in Missouri give birth, the fathers of the children have an opportunity to affirm their paternity. They accomplish this by signing an Acknowledgment of Paternity, which is often completed before a hospital discharges a newborn.

This lack of paternity might impeded efforts by government agencies to collect child support.
