Parent details missing

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The petition asks for names, birthdates, city of birth and current city they live in, from both sets of parents.

My issue is that I dont know where my bio father is. I only know his name thanks to my birthcertificate. I have no idea where he was born, what year it was or where he is now. My mother doesnt remember either. Can i leave this information as 'Not Available' in the petition? My mother remarried when i was 15 and my stepdad is my dad really, just never officially adopted me. What is the best option here?

Not knowing this information is fine - just fill in his first and last name. For the rest of the information on him, just write "unknown."

The important part is to fill in the boxes with at least something, just so it doesn't look like you accidentally missed a question.

When a piece of information is both unknown and unobtainable by you, "unknown" is the answer.  In some fields you may need to hand write it.
