As it appears her original birth certificate was lost at the county office.

I actually made that trip last fall. I believe they can use the delayed birth certificate, but a passport would be easier to avoid any issues. You should contact the Canadian Border security and the U.S. border security just to be sure however and possibly get something in writing for them.

Can you find out? She can't get passport in time.

I know they can have birth certificate and drivers license. But I am not sure about delayed birth certificate. Is it equal to birth certificate in their eyes?

This is what I found for reentering the US. https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/724/kw/delayed%20birth%20certificate/suggested/1

I saw that an hour ago. It says infants and children. But she is over 50 years old. It is still not clear. That's why I paid to talk to you to find out for sure.

I am going to opt out so another attorney can help.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Oh ok. Tell them to hurry up.
