Cost To Replace Birth Certificate
Your birth certificate has specific information about you. It shows where you were born, when you were born, your nationality, weight at birth, and even the time of your birth. It shows your legal name at birth, and in many cases, the names of your mother and father, and helps show lineage. Many birth records also have another identification number, not your national insurance number assigned to them.
Every person born in the U.S. gets a birth certificate and social security number, establishing his or her name, age, birthplace and U.S. citizenship. Citizenship is automatically granted to those born in the U.S. Sometimes a birth certificate is needed as proof of citizenship, for instance, when applying for a driver's license, social security card, or certain types of employment.
