What happens if I lose my child’s birth certificate?
If you lose your child’s birth certificate there might not be any negative consequences right away, but there are certain things that you/they will not be able to do without a birth certificate. This includes:
- Applying for a passport
- Registering for school
- Obtaining a driver’s license
- Applying for a marriage license
- Signing up for sports
- Applying for a new copy of your social security card
