I have four children, 3 born at home with a CPM. Two of my children were born in New Hampshire and issued birth certificates there. The oldest was born in a hospital and the youngest was born at home in NC.
I recently applied for passports for all of my children. We received two passports in the mail today, one for my oldest (hospital birth) and one for my youngest (NC home birth). For the two middle children we received a thick envelope with a multi-page questionnaire and request for supporting documents including prenatal records, baptismal records, school records, mortgage or rent receipts, etc.
All because their NH birth certificates say the birth location was "at home"!
Apparently an official birth certificate issued by a state is not sufficient proof of citizenship anymore!? My son's birth certificate from NC doesn't mention home birth, it just says the city of birth for location. So his application was processed without issue.
We are upset and frustrated. Not only is this aggravating but it is scary that the US government can decide when to accept a certified state document as valid or not.
I was curious if anyone else has had problems obtaining passports for their children born at home.
Any advice or information appreciated.
