Is it possible for my husbands birth certificate to be wrong?

Resolved Question:

Is it possible for my husbands birth certificate to be wrong? It says he was born in 1959 but I have always know him to be born in 1965. His Drivers license says 1965. I have been with him for almost 25 years is this possible?

From which state is the birth certificate issued?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Virginia. Also his dad was in the Military and my husband is a Jr. We were thinking if it was possible that maybe his dad had changed it to get credit in his name and ss # XXXXX he was little but this is just an assumption
Expert:  P. Simmons replied 4 years ago.
The Virginia office of vital records can get you a copy of the certificate. You can start the process to contact them here

His birth certificate will state the time/date of his birth.

I already have a copy of the certificate. How do we know if it is correct? Is it possible to prove a birth other than thru the birth certificate. Is it possible for a parent to get these changed?

Expert:  P. Simmons replied 4 years ago.
The only way a parent can change a birth certificate is if there is evidence of a clear mistake.

And that would not be easy to do.

They would have to prove the mistake through hospital records.

So it is possible to correct a record, but only with clear evidence of mistake in the record.
