A) I understand that you need to get your mother’s welfare record when you were born at home and that you are trying to get a passport. I will try to provide you with some information and resources that may help you with your situation.
First, you need to determine if your mother received any government benefits or assistance when you were born, such as food stamps, housing help, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). If she did, you may be able to obtain her welfare record from the state agency that administered the program. You can find contact information for state social service agencies on the USAGov website. You can also search for specific programs or benefits on the same website or on the ASPE website .
Second, you need to have a proof of your U.S. citizenship and identity to apply for a passport. If you were born at home and do not have a birth certificate, you may be able to use other documents such as an Affidavit of Parentage, a hospital record of birth, a baptismal certificate, or a census record. You can find more information on how to get a passport without a birth certificate on the PassportInfo website . You can also find out how to apply for a new adult passport on the USAGov website or the Travel.State.Gov website .
Third, you need to find a local passport agency, post office, or another authorized facility that accepts passport applications. Some accept walk-ins, while others require an appointment. Both parents or guardians must be present with the infant, so keep this in mind when choosing a time. You can find passport service locations on the Travel.State.Gov website . You can also find tips on how to get a passport for your baby on the Travel and Leisure website or the Points Guy website .
Again I understand that you need to get your mother’s welfare record when you were born in order to get a passport. However, since you were born at home, there may not be a welfare record for your mother. In this case, you may need to try other ways to prove your citizenship, such as:
- Getting a copy of your birth certificate from the local registrar’s office.
- Getting a letter from your mother stating that you were born in the United States.
- Getting a letter from a doctor or midwife who attended your birth.
- Getting a affidavit of parentage from your mother.
You can contact the U.S. Department of State for more information on how to prove your citizenship.
Here are the steps on how to get a copy of your birth certificate:
- Find out the name of the local registrar’s office in the county where you were born. You can do this by contacting the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or by searching online.
- Contact the local registrar’s office and request a copy of your birth certificate. You will need to provide your name, date of birth, and place of birth. You may also need to provide proof of identity, such as a driver’s license or passport.
- The local registrar’s office will charge a fee for a copy of your birth certificate. The fee varies from state to state.
Once you have obtained a copy of your birth certificate, you can use it to apply for a passport. You can apply for a passport online or by mail. You will need to provide your birth certificate, a recent passport photo, and other documentation.
I hope this helps!
