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?
State/Country relating to question: Virginia
I have looked into his school records and it indicates that he would have been born in 1965. How could this happen?

Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.From which state is the birth certificate issued?
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
The Virginia office of vital records can get you a copy of the certificate. You can start the process to contact them herehttp://www.vdh.state.va.us/vital_records/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?

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.
