Making an Affidavit of Birth

  • What is an Affidavit of Birth?

    An Affidavit of Birth is a legal document that can be used to verify the facts surrounding an individual's birth, including birth date, location, and the name of each parent. If you are unable to obtain an acceptable birth certificate, you may submit an Affidavit of Birth as a substitute. To make this Affidavit, you must find someone with personal knowledge about your birth. That person is often a blood relative, but could be someone else who was there when you came into the world, such as the attending physician, nurse, or midwife. Called the "affiant," the person making and signing the Affidavit will need to state how they know the details of your birth to be true. This document must be notarized before you can use it as an official substitute for a birth certificate.

    Use the Affidavit of Birth document if:

    • Your birth record is incomplete.
    • You are unable to locate your complete birth record.
    • You need additional proof of your birth when applying for a job or official documentation, such as a passport, visa, or Green Card.

    Other names for this document are: Affidavit of Live Birth, Date of Birth Affidavit, Affidavit of Birth Certificate
