Name Change – 19-0044130 (DS)

61-year-old client needs assistance with a petition to establish birth facts in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, and a subsequent request for a delayed birth certificate from the State of Florida. Client does not have much information regarding her birth. She believes she was born in Florida because her father was from there, and it is the location documented in her social security Numident. In January 2017, client requested a birth record from the Florida Department of Health, Office of Vital Statistics. In January 2018, client received a “No Record Letter” from the Florida Department of Health. Client also has expired PA photo IDs, a social security card, and a voter registration card. A volunteer is needed to help client gather other identification documents, petition the court, and obtain her birth certificate. Client needs a birth certificate so she can apply for social security benefits in a few years, and get a current photo ID.
