The Delayed Registration for
Foreign Birth procedure allows for the creation of a Michigan birth certificate
for children adopted in foreign countries by Michigan residents. In order
to be eligible for a Michigan birth certificate through Oakland County, the
adoptive parent(s)/ petitioner(s) must be a current resident of Oakland County,
the adoption must have been completed in a foreign country and the petitioner
must have a IR3 visa from Immigration and
Naturalization Services. The IR3 visa classification shows that the adoption was both legal in the country
where it occurred and valid for U.S. immigration purposes.
