We are about to go and apply for our
Passports and I seen that there was some
discrepancies in my birth certificate.
First, the hospital staff wrote over a
letter in my last name on two occasions
due to a misspelling. Second, they listed
my fathers birthplace as the same as my
mothers which was not correct. Do you see
any problems applying for a passport? Should
I fill the application out per my birth
certificate or with the correct info?
You don't say, but it sounds like that is a hospital birth certificate. You must have a raise seal state birth certificate for a passport. That wouldn't have and write overs. Other info wouldn't be noticed much.
Definitely get the State Issued with the raised seal. Get 2 while your at it. When you apply for the passport, they'll keep one. It's not difficult to get the state issued one. You can look on your state's website to find the location. You might even be able to simply order it over the internet. It shouldn't cost more than $5 a piece. If you travel anywhere outside the US, you'll need either the State Issued birth certificate or passport.
We just checked with the folks at the courthouse about surrendering your birth certificate when applying for a passport. Here's the deal. When you apply for the passport they take your birth certificate. However, the birth certificate is mailed back to you with your new passport. So unless you have an uncontrollable urge to spend the money for the extra birth certificate, it's really not necessary to get one.
