If you were not married, you need to sign an affidavit of paternity to be on the birth certificate. If she refuses to cooperate, file a petition to establish parentage. If she does cooperate, file a petition to establish a parenting plan, since you are not a legal father until the court has established you as one.

Ex what?? Ex-wife, or ex-girl friend?? It makes a difference.? Ask her for a copy, or seek a copy of the birth certificate from California Dept. of Public Health (see http://www.cdph.ca.gov/certlic/birthdeathmar/pages/certifiedcopiesofbirthdeathrecords.aspx?) - but they will provide you a copy only if you are named in the birth certificate, or file an action under the Uniform Parentage Act (otherwise known as a Paternity case).

Request a copy of the birth certificate. If you are the biological father, you should file a complaint to establish paternity, whether you are on the birth certificate or not if you were not married to the mom at the time.
