Evidence of maternity/paternity

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone again ... so reading my embassy's www it asks for evidence of maternity and paternity. Our kids aren't babies anymore and somehow the prenatal records (sonograms, etc)were tossed out when we moved from one house to another. Isn't the birth certificate and what we have in this country called "Family Book" which lists marriages and births enough? And for my husband, are his work records enough to prove he was in the country at conception? Thanks!

  1. Evidence of maternity/paternity: The Consular officer may require additional evidence of the blood relationship between the child and the parents listed on the birth certificate. When you come to your appointment, please bring the mother's pre-natal medical records including sonogram, hospital's birth certificate, doctor's signed statement attesting to pre-natal treatment, or other evidence. In addition, bring evidence that the father was in the country with the mother at the time of conception.

Sounds to me like they may ask for these things if they have doubts, but late registering (since you said the kids are not babies), they may want extra proof.

The sonogram pics are probably gone, but you should be able to get a copy of your medical records from the doctor/ hospital you attended. How about other stuff, such as congratulation cards addressed to both of you or social media posts from the time?

I never got any congratulations cards but was many social media posts. So they accept those?

In this country there are no medical records kept at the hospital, just a "carnet de sante" a health book which all medical records which the parents keep ... and the doctors/nurses update. Would this suffice?

Thank you for help.

Social media by itself would not be enough, but with the health book and birthcerts, I think should be fine.
