Birth Certificate Templates
A birth certificate is a very important piece of paper a person will need throughout his or her life in order to prove their age and nationality. Schools and health insurance companies often ask for a copy of a birth certificate, as well as the government in order to be issued a social security number or driver’s license. In fact, there are many reasons a person will need to show a certified copy of their birth certificate.
A Certificate of Birth is issued at the time of birth that lists the child’s name, biological parents, and city or county where they were born. A birth certificate template can be used to give as a gift to new parents that can use attractive paper and framed since many places will require a certified birth certificate they receive from the government.
Other information commonly found on a record of birth is the weight of the child and the signature of the registrar or a person commissioned by the government to be the custodian of birth records. A birth certificate is used many times throughout a person’s life. It is expected of a person to show a certified copy of their birth certificate when they want to marry, receive healthcare, take exams, open a bank account, obtain a passport, and to inherit money or property among many other reasons.
Birth certificate templates come in a variety of styles ranging from professional to those that are more informal. They can be used for many different reasons, including having one in a scrapbook, to be framed to be on display in the child’s room, or to include in a baby book.
