HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regardI suggest that you can contact PR.Gov at this link birth certificates can be ordered on line at www.vitalchek.com or by phone through VitalChek’s 24/7 bilingual call center at (866)(###) ###-####/u>. An express processing fee and shipping costs apply for this service. You need the old BC first. And then you will take your court orders for the adoptions with the new names and the original BC to the PA Social Security Office in your area - you can get the SS first with those documents, and then GO TO vital records in your area and present the new SS Cards, the old BC from PR and the court ordered adoptions and get new BC assigned.
If you already have the original BC from PR because of the adoption process then you can skip that step and take them and the court order for the adoptions to the SS office. I suggest you have to appear in person with a certified copy of the Adoption Orders.
The original certificate is coming from PR not your state, correct? And do it is not issued by your state. You need the PR original to proceed - regardless of what direction you go in.
But I will opt out and perhaps another professional will be able to provide you the information. Good luck! Please do not respond here until someone else contacts you and your deposit remains in tact. Thank you
I will try to answer your question as best as possible. First you will want to make sure you have a certified copy of the adoption decree. Second you should use the Adoption Decree and Copy of original birth certificate to obtain SS Cards. Next I would advise contacting your state congressman's office's and advise of the problem and the steps you have taken. Congressmen's offices offer constituents services if you live in the area. They can be very helpful to push matters through and expedite the process. An attorney can just provide steps necessary to complete, but general does not have as much pull to push a matter through and expedite as your local congressman's staff does. I would contact your state congressman/representative or state senator first as they are normally more responsive than Federal. Considering your return is being held up this is the advise I would give to my family or friend if asked. I help this is helpful and I wish you the best of luck.
