Arrival of new baby at home is an exciting time for the family. Amidst the celebrations one must not forget to get hold of that important document that authorizes the identification of your baby; the birth certificate. For a baby born in United States, there is a lot of paper work to go for and the parents must also get the idea about the documents needed to have the birth of the baby registered and certified.
Remember to fill out the application while you are still in the hospital. The hospital authorities do tackle the charge of the submission on behalf of you. Some hospitals also advise you to apply for SSN before thebirth certificate form. The hospitals are required to send the birth records to State office. Once the correct records reach the state office, the certificate will be issued to you quickly through mail.In fact it is good to have your baby’s name decided in advance so that it becomes easier to apply for the certificate.
The copies of the birth certificates are required during various events like school enrollment, for a work permit, getting passport and driving license etc. Collect the form from the hospital to order for the extra copies. Fill the form and post it to the county Health Department along with the fee mentioned. The office keeps the records of your baby for next 3 years. If you want more copies after the span of three years then send date of birth, baby’s name, and parents’ details at the State Health Vital Records Office.

Standard U.S. birth certificates are those issued by state government and are a crucial proof of U.S. citizenship.At times the certificates issued may not be an official record to prove your citizenship, so have it certified and check for its validity thoroughly. The birth certificate of your child is the only evidence of your kid’s naturalized citizenship.In cases where the birth certificate is not present or is not acceptable for some reason, the passport or a certificate of citizenship can only authenticate the proof of your child being a citizen of US.
