Thanks! I have been worrying about this since I had a hard time last time, and that was a MIDWIFE ATTENDED BIRTH and she filed and did all the paperwork for me!
Our big problem was with social security. They said I needed MORE THAN a birth certificate and my ID! I said what more could you frickin' want? and they said "Shot records" well when i said we dont vax, that got me more puzzlement than the homebirth.
I ended up taking my healthy little newborn to a doctor to say yes he is real. That reciept from the doctor, with the birth certificate, got us his Soc#.
We wanted our tax return to be as big as it could be!
: He was our dependant and gosh darnit we wanted to file.
