Hi,

I'm gathering all my documentation at the moment for my K1 interview and I have one little concern:

I was born in 1974 and adopted when I was only 6 months old. I have my adoption certificate and an accompanying birth certificate that was issued at the time which only lists my adoptive parents, not my birth parents.

Does anyone out there know from experience if these will suffice? I really don't wish to go through all the rigmarole of obtaining a copy of my original birth certificate (fill in a form, send to the council, meet with a counsellor, etc.) Besides, I've gone 36 years happily not knowing who my birth parents were and I've no wish to know now!

Thanks, and good luck to everyone in their applications.

When you are adopted your original birth certificate is null and void and is replaced by a new certificate.... this certificate becomes your legal document of your birth and is what you should use
