Mom does not have a Birth Certification for DS-230

Hi

My mom's case is at NVC now. She is in the process of getting her documents ready for DS-230. An issue is her birth certificate. She was born in Indian before the partition in 1947 and then her family moved to Pakistan. She had no birth certificates from where she was born in India. The guidelines say that in such cases, an elder relative can write an affidavit. But she does not have an elder relative either.

Anyone in a similar boat. Any ideas?

Thank you all!

Here's some info that may help. It is found in the DOS web site.

Unobtainable birth certificates

The applicant’s birth record may not be obtainable. Some reasons are listed below:

* The applicant’s birth was never officially recorded.

* The applicant’s birth records have been destroyed.

* The appropriate government authority will not issue one.

Please obtain a certified statement from the appropriate government authority stating the reason the applicant’s birth record is not available. With the certified statement the applicant must submit secondary evidence. For example:

* A baptismal certificate that contains the date and place of birth, as well as both parents names (providing the baptism took place shortly after birth)

* An adoption decree for an adopted child

* An affidavit from a close relative, preferably the applicant’s mother, stating the date and place of birth, both parents names, and the mother’s maiden name.

If none of those help, then the best thing would be to call the NVC directly to see what they suggest.
