There are many reasons that you might unexpectedly need a copy of your birth certificate without realizing your original one has been lost or destroyed. In many cases, people need to obtain a birth certificate faster than possible through traditional means. Although going to the office where the original document was issued can result in getting it almost instantly, many people are a long way from their county and state of birth. If you have the documentation required, you can get a birth certificate online and receive it a lot faster than ordering it from the issuing agency.
Types of ID
The most important type of documentation you will need is your ID. This is a requirement for most states. Of course, everyone does not have a driver’s license which they can use to prove their identity. In these cases, an alternative may be recommended including:
- Bank Statement
- Utility Bill
- State ID
- Identity Quiz (in some states)
Taking new paths in life can be exciting. Many of those paths require a valid birth certificate. Going into the military, obtaining a driver’s license, getting a passport, and many other occasions require a birth certificate. Fortunately, it is easy to get a birth certificate fast when the occasion arises when you have simple forms of ID that prove you are who you say you are.
