Had an unassisted home birth in South Carolina in February.

Customer Question

Had an unassisted home birth in South Carolina in February. Failed the administrative birth certificate process. Now must file a petition of court for a court ordered delayed birth certificate. Unable to find forms to petition the court myself. Local lawyer asking $1500. (*Just paid criminal lawyer $1500. Turns out unassisted home births are frowned upon.)

I am afraid South Carolina does not make these forms available online, so it will require a local attorney to actually draft from scratch. If you cannot afford a local attorney, you can go to the local legal aid office, but our site experts are forbidden from engaging in any practice of law in SC by SC law, so I am afraid that if the form is not available online we cannot draft one for you.
