return of brth certificate
by: Summer Adams

Question: I was told that when applying for a passport for my daughter whom I adopted from China that the original raised seal birth certificate would be returned to me, That was my last certified copy . She needs it to get her drivers license and I am sure she will need it for many other situations.

How do I get it back? They sent the new passport and other documents that were required but not the only birth certificate I had. How do I get it back.

Answer: Suppoting documents are mailed separately from the new passport. The birth certificate should arrive soon. If it does not, call 1-877-487-2778 to speak with a customer service representative.
