Birth Certificate

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I have decided to get the Birth certificate translated to English and my question is how can i include my name.

We in India dont normally have a name at birth and my birth certificate does not have my name either, it just has my parents name, the time and the hospital i was born in with a official seal.

Now if i have to include my name in the new translated English certificate, how do i do it, all my official documents, like my India Security number, Passport, my certificates, bank accounts all have my current name.

Has anybody done this before, need advice

After translation who needs to attest the certificate, i am going to a advocate to get the certificate notarized, what else needs to get stamped on the certificate to show its genuine...

Cheers

Ravi

I think if you are requesting a new certificate from the issuing authority you can request or they will automatically put name on certificate at this time. My husbands birth certificate has his name on it (he was born in 1967). It may be the re-issue of the certificate as an adult they can put the name on it (I understand that babies dont get a name immediatly after birth like here in the USA).

Thanks Indianheart, i am not requesting for a new certificate but getting it translated but also want to include my name on it. Yes you are correct, we have this lenghty procedure of choosing the right name for months when we are babies :)

Hoping to get more replies, i am sure there would be somebody who went through this ???

Thanks again

I don't know what to suggest :unsure: because my hubby didn't have an actual birth certificate, we used Affidavit from his mother.

I would think that a real and true translation would NOT include your name. On the basis of the fact that it is your parent's names and your own date of birth, it would be accepted.

I would think for a translation, just a statement from anyone saying they are competent to translate would be enough. And I would think an advocate and his seal would be enough.

If I was in your position, best would be to return to the office that issued your birth certificate and get a copy with your name on it. If that was not possible, I would probably get it translated exactly as it is, without your name. Then I would get an Affidavit from your parents stating that they named you late and the birth certificate is in fact yours.

Good luck! :thumbs:

You can also include your 10th pass certificate along with translated birth certificate. I do remember reading how NVC and embassy will accept 10th pass certificate if immigrant can't provide with actual BC

My husband got his 2-year conditional green card. We have to send in the application to remove conditions next year and then he will get the 10-year green card.

My husband sent his 10th class certificate along with the Birth Affidavit from his mother. The application specifies that the Affidavit MUST be sent in if there is no birth certificate, so we thought the more paperwork the better, and better safe than sorry!
