If this does not fly or you don't want to push it here use the format for what to do to change a date of birth after validation. At the end of this paper it states that the child's name is now______________( you get to fill that in.) After that type in "From this date forward the correct birth date of said child will be _______________". Most of the time you can fill this out online in a PDF format and print it. When you have the birth certificate with the new date of birth on it you will need to send in the supporting documents you used for the validation when you apply for the Certificate of Citizenship.

I set about to collect information for myself and then for others.

Now, there are more sites for resources, but still not much that brings it all together.

Send in the documentation used for the Validation along with the Validation update and state certification of foreign birth. If you need to get a passport use the corrected Certificate of Citizenship as proof. If you have done a name change then the old passport will do you no good anyway and you will have to use the Certificate of Citizenship. This process takes about 3 months in El Paso County.

a mom on one of my groups had this experience (this is a segment of her note): 3) Obtained CO Birth Certificate (not evidence of citizenship) 4) Found out through dental examination and developmental assessments at International adoption clinic that our daughter was two years older then reported 5) Compiled documentation of evidence to change age and submitted to juvenile court via a general request to the court to petition for a order to CO Vital Records to change birth date (no charge for this, you do not need to re-finalize adoption a second time to change the BC) 6) Order approved by court so we sent a request for new BC and fees for new BC to CO Vital Records 7) Received new CO BC in which they literaly crossed off her old birth date and typed in the new one 8) Sent ALL documents of for US passport with a note emphazing that the birth date had been changed 9) Received passport with correct (new) DOB at which time I went in person to the SS office and they corrected the birth date and changed number to a US citizen number 10) When you file for the COC you need to provide reason for why you changed the birthdate of your child. You can start right away and do it concurrently with the ATIN. Send in all the same info on why you changed the dob that you sent with the validation.District Court Denver Juvenile Court __________________________________County, Colorado Court Address: IN THE MATTER OF THE PETITION OF: ______________________________ (name of person(s) seeking to adopt) FOR VALIDATION OF A FOREIGN DECREE OF ADOPTION Attorney or Party Without Attorney (Name and Address): COURT USE ONLY Case Number: Phone Number: FAX Number: E-mail: Atty. #: Division Courtroom PETITION FOR VALIDATION OF FOREIGN DECREE OF ADOPTION The Petitioner(s) being desirous of validating a foreign decree of adoption, so as to make said child for all intents and purposes the legal child of Petitioner(s), state(s) the following facts: Information about the Petitioner(s): Petitioner #1: ____________________________________________________________________ (Full Name) Date of Birth: ________________ Race: ______________ Place of Bir District Court Denver Juvenile Court __________________________________County, Colorado Court Address: IN THE MATTER OF THE PETITION OF: ______________________________ (name of person(s) seeking to adopt) FOR VALIDATION OF A FOREIGN DECREE OF ADOPTION Attorney or Party Without Attorney (Name and Address): COURT USE ONLY Case Number: Phone Number: FAX Number: E-mail: Atty. #: Division Courtroom PETITION FOR VALIDATION OF FOREIGN DECREE OF ADOPTION The Petitioner(s) being desirous of validating a foreign decree of adoption, so as to make said child for all intents and purposes the legal child of Petitioner(s), state(s) the following facts: Information about the Petitioner(s): Petitioner #1: ____________________________________________________________________ (Full Name) Date of Birth: ________________ Race: ______________ Place of Birth: ____________________________ Current Mailing Address: ___________________________________________________________________ City & Zip: _______________________________________________________________________________ Home Phone #: ____________________ Work Phone #: ___________________ Cell #: _________________ Length of Residence in Colorado: ____________________ Occupation: ______________________________ Place of residence at the time of birth of the child._______________________________________________________________________________________ Street Address City State Zip Code Petitioner #2: ____________________________________________________________________ (Full Name) Date of Birth: ________________ Race: ______________ Place of Birth: ____________________________ Current Mailing Address: ___________________________________________________________________ City & Zip: _______________________________________________________________________________ Home Phone #: ____________________ Work Phone #: ___________________ Cell #: _________________ Length of Residence in Colorado: ____________________ Occupation: _____________________________ Place of residence at the time of birth of the child.
