What is a Birth Certificate?

Birth Certificate

A birth certificate is one of the most important documents that every person should have. Not only are they used by the government to maintain official records, but they’re also necessary for completing a wide range of essential functions.

It is a vital record that establishes the identity of a person and lists the full name, date of birth, place of birth, parent's full name, and other identifying information.

The process of obtaining a birth certificate can be quite complicated and time-consuming, especially if you're doing it on your own. This is where GOV+ comes in.
