How long for a US baby's birth certificate and other papers?

Hi Everyone,

Ok...I know this is a bit off-topic, and my baby is not born yet....(but soon to be)

But I would like to know:

How long does it take to get a US birth certificate after the baby is born?

Anything else I need to know about legal paperwork/documentation for the baby at the hospital?

I know they start the paperwork for the birth certificate, SSN, and other paperwork, at the hospital after the baby is born. But I would like to know how long it is going to take for all of it to be completed and received, especially more so that we are moving soon in the next few weeks in August...yikes....

As well, I am hoping to file my N-400/US Citizenship paperwork by mid-August. So do you think that I will get the baby's birth certificate and other documentation about the baby in time for me to file for such as expected by then? If not, how much longer do I have to wait and/or have to delay my applicaiton by?

Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.


P.S. I forgot to mention that I live in New York State, if that's any help here too.

No such thing as a US birth certificate.... Births are recorded by state and submitted locally most often to the county government. Each locale is different.... I had my daughters within three days of verifying the birth information submitted to the county by the hospital.

Social Security - about two weeks

Birth Cert - varies by state, two to six weeks. If you want you can pay more for faster processing.

The hospital will give you a certification of birth, you can use that for N-400 filing and take the actual birth cert to the interview
