A birth certificate is a document with the help of which a person can interact with many institutions and solve a significant number of legal issues – both in his homeland and abroad. The team of migration lawyers of the law firm “Prikhodko&Partners” is often contacted with requests related to the need to obtain a duplicate birth certificate. Supporting such a procedure is a regular job for us, so we can offer our clients quality assistance that will save a lot of time and effort and save them from having to deal with bureaucratic aspects. Next, we will briefly talk about how a duplicate certificate is made.
What is the procedure for obtaining a duplicate birth certificate?
Therefore, a person can apply to the appropriate department of the RACS where he lives or is registered. Many people choose this path, but in practice it takes quite a long time and is associated with spending efforts on waiting and contacting authorized representatives of this institution. During a full-scale war, the issue was further complicated by the fact that the work schedule of the RATS was often interrupted by air raids. So it happens that a person spent almost the whole day in line, waiting for the opportunity to get in, and the air alarm put the work of the institution on hold for the last hour or two. So the next day you have to go through this procedure in a new round with a break to visit the bank and pay the state fee for the service. Not everyone can afford to take such time off from work or other urgent matters.
In view of all that was stated above, a much more constructive option would be to seek legal support from a person who will assume a representative function. All you have to do is contact us using the specified contact details, leaving a request, and then it’s our job to do everything quickly and efficiently. We can help you get a repeat certificate in any settlement, because the same algorithm of interaction with authorized state bodies is relevant throughout the territory of Ukraine.
If you are interested in a duplicate birth certificate, the price will be formed from the state duty and legal services of your legal representative. When a lawyer makes a request to the area where the certificate was issued, the case takes an average of 5 working days. Applying and waiting on your own requires much more time, as evidenced by the experience of many people who have tried to do it on their own.
Is it possible to get a duplicate certificate if you are abroad?
Sometimes it happens that a person needs a birth certificate precisely in order to present it abroad during certain transactions – for example, obtaining a residence permit in another country. Some are starting to worry that they will have to go to Ukraine for that, spending a lot of time and money on the road, and then wait for the document here on the spot. However, today there are much better options that make life easier for the clients of the law firm “Prikhodko&Partners”. You can contact us remotely, and we will guide you on how to act and take over the entire legal side of the issue. And when the re-certificate is ready, we will send it using courier services.
Who can get a duplicate birth certificate?
Both the owner himself and his close relatives can apply for a duplicate birth certificate. These are parents, children, grandchildren, grandparents. But in the second case, it will also be necessary to provide documents confirming your family relationship.
Production of a certificate for sending abroad
When clients apply to make a duplicate of a birth certificate for its further use abroad, it is necessary to properly legalize the document so that it is valid in the territory of another country. With good experience in migration law, we provide our clients with such a service and know how to do it as quickly as possible. For this, the document must undergo the apostillation procedure. Apostille is a special square stamp measuring 10×10 cm, the affixing of which makes the certificate valid in all countries that at one time joined the Hague Convention. It is worth noting that a sufficiently wide list of states is envisaged. It can also be stamps of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or Consular Legalization of the birth certificate.
In a word, our experts know which algorithm to act in order to solve the issue as quickly as possible, thereby freeing the client from unnecessary bureaucratic nuances. Get in touch – and the lawyers of the “Prikhodko&Partners” law office will help you get the document promptly.
