My Dad Birth Certificate - Wrong Year?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am US Citizen and petition for My Dad to get green card. My dad is currently in the US and we are preparing documents for AOS. There is one problem that in his passport and all of other documents showing that his birth day is 1955. Even in the government system, his birthday is also 1955. But in his birth certificate, it showed that he was born in 1953. I try to ask the government to give my dad a new birth certificate. They said they don't have any record of it anymore because of the war. So the only document is the birth certificate in 1953. What should I do? Should I summit the original birth certificate showing his birthdate is 1953 and his passport showed that his birthday is 1955. Please help me. Thanks

What country are we talking about?? Profile and timeline lack details.

I would submit copy of passport, and copy of birth cert, and explain in cover letter that a corrected birth cert is unobtainable.

(2) Unobtainable documents. If the consular officer is satisfied that a document or record required under the authority of this section is unobtainable, the consular officer may accept satisfactory alternative pertinent evidence. A document or other record shall be considered unobtainable if it cannot be procured without causing the applicant or a member of the applicant's family actual hardship as distinct from normal delay and inconvenience.

My Mum is having a similar problem, in that her middle name on her birth certificate is one thing, and on her passport and every other document, it is another, slightly different name. Unbelievably, she did not notice it until now and clearly no one else did either since she was able to get all her other documents in the other name. Anyway, she is applying for some official government-y type stuff in her country of birth and has so far been okay with a letter form a lawyer and a signed affidavit.

This is less of a problem, the forms allow for "Other Names Used" Simply put B.C. Name on other names used.

We live in Vietnam. The thing is his real birthday is in 1953. So the original birth certificate got the correct birthday. But after the Vietnam war, for some reason, he change his birthday to 1955 and that's why the new government got 1955 on their system but they don't have any evidence of his birth certificate. Only the old government had. I read some other forums and they said I should include affidavit letters from older relatives like uncle, my dad's father, aunt,... stating that he was born in 1955. Do you think USCIS accept birth certificate from Vietnam Embassy any more. What can i do now? We was so close to summit the application. It's gonna be really sad if they denied us because of my dad birth certificate.

Then just use the 1955 and don't submit a birth certificate and just submit a letter that bc is unobtainable.
