Birth Certificate Template

By | May 6, 2014

Birth certificate as the name indicates is a certifying document of birth of a child. These certificates are in use all over the world for record keeping purposes and to be used in legal matters relating to court of law and other law authorities. Birth certificates have a long history and Church of England initiated this process of registration for keeping record of people who are born and baptized. This was initially started in ancient civilizations of China, Egypt, Greece and Rome etc. but the use was propagated to even 18th century and holds fast till today. The ancient purposes of birth certificates were to generate tax on the basis of population and other power resourcing purposes.
Birth certificates are used, as described earlier in matters related to court of law and other legal matters. The main purpose of a birth certificate however is the identification of an individual on the basis of his or her time of birth, place of birth and the parents to whom he or she was born. This leads to the age verification of a person. Birth certificates find their use in matters where aging factor is an important element, such as certain jobs which require a specific age group; for example military jobs where a specified age group can enter only. These certificates also prove to be helpful for students enrolling in an education program where age limit is implemented. One of the major uses of a birth certificate is that it is the first official identification document of a child, until he or she gets a driving license or national identity card or passport and hence provides a nationality proof. Birth certificates are also used in court of law for adoption purposes.

Birth certificates are usually issued by a registration authority of any district, state or country. Birth certificates are issued by these authorities following a certificate issued by a medical hospital which provides a proof of the birth of a child; the registration authority then issues birth certificate as a response and recognition. The design of birth certificate is that of most formal documents in use. The long and short forms of this certificate are of their own design. The longer form is usually a full page (the size of legally used in any country) document stating the certification statement and signed by due authorities. The short form on other hand is a card form, easy to hold certificate. Both the forms should have name of the holder, date of birth, place of birth, issuing date of certificate, a registration number and signatures of the registering authority. The longer form however, should also have a detail on the parents’ side where their names and other details should be included. The color theme and text should be formal and according to the directions of a registration authority or legal authority dealing with registration matters.
Birth certificates hold great legal value until an individual is of age of registration for a passport or national ID card.
