Social Security # & babies & need for certificate
- No such certificate is needed to obtain a passport. Proof of origin is
what is needed. How are matters proved ? By testimony. Testimony by the
mother, or another competent witness to the birth, duly written,
witnessed, affirmed or given under oath, and recorded in a public office
of government will be good and sufficient proof. How are certificates
created except by testimony ? To receive money directly from Government
requires a Social Security Account Number and to obtain that requires a
certificate of birth, although affidavits have been substituted in the
past. They created a birth certificate for my grandmother in her 60's.
- My dad was born before brith certiicates and used
simple letters/affidavits of some relatives to
obtain passport was back in '60's.
Oath on passport is another issue to overcome/alter.
