Each of us has different situations in life, and it happens that we are faced with the fact that we need to change the birth certificate. If the certificate is lost, becomes unusable, if you need to change the surname or first name, make changes to the data about the mother or father, put a dash in the column "father" - you need to perform some actions.
It is necessary
Passport, birth certificate (if any), receipt of payment of the duty to replace the birth certificate
First you need to understand why your or your child's birth certificate needs to be replaced. The easiest option is the loss of the certificate or its unusability (torn, burnt, washed in the washing machine, etc.). In this case, you need to contact the registry office at the place of registration, take a receipt for payment, pay the fee and write a statement about the loss / damage of the birth certificate. After that, you will be given a new certificate, which will be completely identical to the past. If you can not contact the registry office at the place of registration, you can do this at the place of residence. But at the same time, you will spend more time, since the registry office at the place of residence will first send a request to the registry office at the place of registration, wait for an answer and only after that will issue you a new birth certificate.
If the replacement of a birth certificate is necessary due to a change of surname, it is necessary to act according to the same principle as in case of loss / damage of the certificate. First you need to take a receipt for payment, pay a fee (about 500 rubles) at the bank and, with a paid receipt, come to the registry office. There you write an application to change your name, surname or full name and you will be given a new birth certificate.
Replacement of the certificate, if necessary, change the name of the father / mother. In the event that the name of the father or mother is indicated incorrectly, you need to contact the registry office that issued you the birth certificate. Employees will check the register of civil status records and if the data on the parents are indicated there correctly, then the certificate will be exchanged for you without any problems. If the error is in the registration book, then there is only one way out - to act through the court. You will need to submit an application for corrections in the vital records. Applications are considered at the place of residence of the applicant.
What to do if you need to put a dash instead of the father's name? In this case, there is only one option - to apply to the judicial authorities at the place of residence. Since in order to put a dash in the column "father" you need the consent of the father, or a decision to deprive him of parental rights, or a statement from the father that he is challenging your entry in the birth certificate with words and is not a father. This is a long and difficult process, but if it is nevertheless necessary to make changes to the certificate, then this is the only possible option in this case.
