Same-sex couples are working to make changes to their children’s birth certificates after a judge struck down Arkansas’ gay marriage ban, according to published reports. For the time being, the Arkansas Department of Health is allowing the changes┬áto be made.

A spokesman for the department says two gay couples are already working to be listed as parents on their child’s state-issued birth certificates. The couples are required to fill out the same paperwork as if they were a heterosexual couple needing to add a second parent, according to officials.
