Unsure about Birth Certificate
by: Jaden

Question: I was born 10/27/92. On my long form birth certificate (I have the original) it says Filing Date: 02/23/93. The certificate has a certified stamp with a signature of the director of public health. Is this considered a delayed birth certificate? And would I need to provide additional evidence?

Answer: A delayed birth certificate is any birth certificate not filed within one year of the date of birth. Since your birth date and filing date are just 5 months apart, you do not have a delayed birth certificate. You should not have to provide additional documents when you apply for your passport.

Birth Certificate filed late, Please read
by: Anonymous

If your birth Certificate was filed years after your birth, please look into whether or not you were adopted. Unfortunately, I found this out too late in life and I'm determined not to let anyone else go through my pain. Please look into it.
