Birth Certificates

Contact our Lawyers

Birth certificates are traditionally straightforward and relatively simple to obtain. However, when a foreign parent is involved, additional authentication processes must be undertaken. In this situation, complications can arise and this may prove challenging to the new parents.

In addition to providing personal records and appropriate medical paperwork, the parents are also required to produce notarized and legalized copies of their documents, affiliated affidavits and letters expressing both parents’ joint agreement on the child’s nationality. Without consultation, parents might run into a number of unexpected difficulties with timing and bureaucratic mishaps.

Family Lawyers aim to lighten the load for new parents, enabling them to devote all their time and effort to their new-born. Our attorneys are happy to assist you in navigating the bureaucracy but also to ensure that your child is entitled to all their civil rights as provided by the law in Vietnam. Our attention to detail in obtaining birth certificates lays the foundation for securing full citizenship for your child.

Over the years, we have successfully advised clients on the following legal matters:

  • Determinations regarding the nationality of the child which have a crucial impact to their rights and liabilities under the jurisdiction of Vietnam
  • Establishing the marital or relationship status between the father and mother of the child and documentation supporting the recognition of the child being naturally born to the parents
  • Matters relating to translation of documents, ensuring they meet authentication and quality standards. The purpose of which is to avoid any risk and assure all the eligible benefits are afforded to the parents and child

Inconsistencies within documents and between testimonies of the involved parties can have major ramifications on obtaining a birth certificate. For example, if the hospital where the child was born happened to submit information incongruous to that provided by the parents, the mismatched documents can lead to an unexpected denial of birth certificate issuance. 

With a keen eye for detail and our collective experience, our team of attorneys are exceptionally accomplished in detecting any errors, preventing any unexpected rejection from occurring. Family Lawyers can be entrusted to deal with all matters relating to the birth of your child, ensuring this moment of your life can be spent enjoying time with your new family member.
