How can I obtain roof of my birth if I was born abroad in a country that is currently not stable and the birth certificate my parents got is probably long destroyed or unavailable to be requested from said country?
Question Details: I am a naturalized citizen who was born abroad. For a bunch of reasons that I probably don't need to mention, I need to get a birth certificate. How would I do it? Is there even a replacement birth certificate that I could obtain from the U.S. that would satisfy any need for a birth certificate? Like just something that says my parents' names and my own and that I was born in said country?
Well you can first try to see if your parents or other family members might have a copy of it. If you were naturalized then you would have had to submit a copy of your birth certificate in order to get a visa and/or green card so it is/was in someone's possession at some time previously. if you are not able to find it this way, you can try to obtain it from your country of birth. you don't mention which country, but assuming it is still a functioning country, these records are most likely kept. you can also contact your country's embassy, if one exists in the US, to try to get some assistance. if all of that fails, you can get an affidavit of birth from people who were either present at the birth (parents) or family members who were aware of your birth at the time. please feel free to contact me for further assistance.
