in Name Change
Client, a senior citizen, seeks assistance in obtaining her birth certificate. Client was born in South Carolina with the assistance of a mid-wife. South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control did not issue a birth certificate, nor does it have a record of her birth. Client has been unable to obtain a state ID because she does not have a birth certificate. The identification documents she does have are inconsistent regarding her year of birth, but she has a lot of documentation. A volunteer is needed to file a petition to establish birth facts and obtain a delayed birth certificate in order for client to be able to get a photo ID.
