Delayed registration of Birth Cert

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a naturalized US citizen who petitioned for 3 siblings from Haiti. USCIS first requested more traditioned info, ie school records, family

photos, hosp records ect. Mind you Haiti just went thru a major earthquake and mostly all of these sources was destroyed. I have no idea why my official birth cert of myself and siblings was registered late. I sent them a cover letter explaining this situation , 2 sworn statements from

persons who know we are siblings, baptism certs from my siblings and copies of their Hatian passports. USCIS denied my petitions. I am at a lost on how to proceed notwithstanding my disappointment. CAN ANYONE OFFER ME ADVICE?

You will need to hire a lawyer in Haiti.. They can help you to a Siblings DNA Test through an embassy approved civil surgeon...This is done all the time in Haiti for the same reasons. So don't worry, it can still work out.

Because your BC was registered late, that's the only way to prove that you are truly related to them. See a lawyer. If you need one, I can point you towards one in Haiti--just send me a private message. Good luck and keep us posted!
