My husand and I are going on our first cruise in May. We have been trying to decide whether or not to get passports. Neither of us have our birth certificates, so we decided to go ahead and get a copy of them and then we will have them even if we don't get passports. My husband recieved his yesterday and his mother's maiden name is spelled wrong. Will this be a problem? I have seen the passport application and know that it asks for your mother's maiden name, but do they compare it with the birth certificate? Is that something we should get changed just in case? Any help on this matter is greatly appreciated.
Hello!! We will be cruising in Feb. on the Dawn. My husband has a old birth certificate with part of the top missing. The seal is fine. How do I go about getting another one? We live in NY and he was born in NJ. I dont want to get it off the computer. I need to go somewhere, But WHERE? I have not clue? Health Dept??? If yes, Which one?
I was born in California but live in another state. I went to the website for the Office of Vital Statistics for California. I was able to print off an application for my birth certificate and mail it in. I'm sure New Jersey probably has the same thing. Just do a search for the New Jersey Office of Vital Statistics. It will cost you a little money, but it costs the same as requesting it in person.
HELP!! We are leaving on Friday and we're all a little confused and worried......Someone please clear up what we need.
I have a passport, but it's in my maiden name...can't find my marriage certificate either. Will this be a problem? It say's on my receipt that newleyweds should book in maiden name if they haven't their driver's liscense, etc. are.
My parents are coming and they don't have passports so they're using their birth certificates.....which my mom's is her maiden name!!
And, We're taking my 4 mo. old, do I need her birth certificate?
Beth, everything will be fine. First off - your birth certificate will always be in your maiden name, its a record of your birth, nothing more nothing less. You will need your daughter's birth certificate with you, your passport will be fine, Are you newlywed? If so then its a really good idea to bring a copy of your marriage license with you. You can get a copy from the clerk of courts from the city where you got your original license( maybe check with your church also). Your folks should be fine, just make sure that they each have a valid driver's license with them as an additional form of identification.
Also, if you booked in your married name and your passport has your maiden name on it, you should bring some form of identification with your married name such as a driver's license. If you don't have the driver's license, or marriage certificate, get a statement from a Notary Public verifying your identity.
