Customer Question
My sister and husband have...
My sister and husband have had their children at home and do not have birth certificates for them. The children have not attended school or any other organization which would have required identity. The oldest child is now 19 and I am wondering how I can help her establish an identity if she wants to do this.
Both of the parents have their own birth records, social security numbers, are american born, and have US educations. There are many family members on both sides who can verify the fact of pregancy and birth for all of the children.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
