i want a tsa pass for airplanes,i have a copy of my birth cert but not certified with one letter wrong but i have a drivers license and 2 pass ports,one from 1977,iam 79 years old

Birth certificates occasionally contain errors like misspellings and transpositions. The records may also need to be updated to add missing information or to reflect name changes, adoptions or to record a father's name after paternity is established. The state of Florida allows amendments to birth certificates if you are the parent of the child named in the record, the record is your birth record and you are over 18, or you have legal custody.

Obtain copies of Florida forms and guidance DH 660-Instructions for Amending a Birth Certificate Form, Form DH 429-Application to Amend a Florida Birth Certificate and Form DH 430-Affidavit to Amendment to Certificate of Live Birth. You may Download copies online from the Florida Department of Health website or call the department at(###) ###-####ext. 9005 and request the documents.

I have attached the Instructions (DH660), Application (DH429) and Affidavit (DH430) below for your convenience.

i was born in Cuyahoga co,cleveland

I have found the instructions for amending your birth certificate in Cuyahoga County. You are going to have to file for your amendment in Cuyahoga County Probate Court. Please follow the instructions on the referenced link below. The request will culminate in a hearing at the Court. Because you reside outside of Ohio, I suggest you contact the probate court to see if your hearing can be conducted via telephone. Typically, courts can accommodate this request.

Copy and paste the below in your URL to see the instructional form.
