State Of Mississippi Birth Certificate
There's a plethora of reasons to have a birth record on hand. School children cannot be enrolled without one. Enlisting into the army cannot be done without proper identification. Opening a bank account, obtaining a passport or visa card, getting a credit card at your bank, receiving an inheritance, and even being married can all be hampered without a birth record.
Getting the certificate as an Adult : If you are over the age of 18 years and you don't have a birth certificate, you can apply for one from your area sub-chief's office. To apply for the certificate you need to have proof that validates your date of birth. This can be your identity card, baptism card, or a birth notification card from hospital.
