Affidavit of Birth: Sample & Overview


What is an Affidavit of birth?

Affidavit of Birth is a legal document that contains facts that show/prove the circumstance of birth of a certain person. It is used instead of a birth certificate. That’s means you don’t need this affidavit if you have a birth certificate.

This Affidavit is always sworn or affirmed by the third party as proof of the birth of another person.

That means you can’t swear or affirm facts adduced on your Affidavit of Birth but a person who knows important information about your birth can do.

It can be father/mother/, grandfather/grandmother, brother/sister/, uncle/aunt, cousin, nephew/niece, or any near relative.

This document may be required in the passport application process, adoption, employment, pension funds, academic issues, etc.

Currently, the use of this affidavit is not very common since most agencies prefer a birth certificate however the use of this document is still allowed when circumstance renders it necessary.
