I am finding that creating a new identity is very difficult to almost impossible, especially if it requires a birth certificate and an SSN. One option is to apply for a SSN, get turned down because you don't have all their required documents, and use the letter they will issue you denying a SSN to obtain an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN). An ITIN looks like a SSN and in most cases can be used in lieu of a SSN.
As I explained under the heading Disappear on the page Disappear in the USA, it may be best to borrow an identity in addition to creating a new identity.
First of all, do understand that I am not urging you to commit fraud or break any laws. This is only a discussion which I hope will engender great caution. I am only describing methods that might be used by someone attempting to create a new identity.
You natural right to create a new identity and to make false statements on the documents the government requires is not the issue. The government is not interested in your natural rights. The steps required to obtain a new identity is very risky business and the state has very severe penalties if you make false statements on their document.
The very best choice, if you can do it, is to date someone or bribe somebody that works for vital statistics; or else, if you could get employed by vital statistics. The birth certificate could then be entered into the records and on the computer showing the birth recorded during the first few days or within the first year of your birth. You would then have a birth certificate issued by a government entity that could be verified and that would provide the means to obtain a driver license, a SSN, and even a passport.
Getting a job with vital statistics is probably not practical. A $5,000 bribe might work. However, depending on your age and level of attractiveness, dating someone would be the best choice. It is very easy to meet and date a young woman if she thinks she is doing well. Date someone that is a little older and lost her bloom or date a big girl. Take her out two or three time and get into her pants. After that you can mention marriage and she will be desperate to please you and will do most anything you ask. Just have plausible story. "The birth certificate is for your best friend or cousin."
Caution: One problem would be that the birth certificates may be consecutively numbered and the computer may reject duplicate numbers. Also you would want a number that matches the birth year. That problem would be solved if the numbering system includes the birth year. Just add the number to the end of the birth year. Otherwise, just pull and replace a birth certificate and change the computer record.
You could immediately apply for a driver license, a SSN, and a passport and, and since you would no longer require the birth certificate, three to four months later, after obtaining the required documents, the record of your birth could be pulled from vital statistics and thereby eliminating the possibility of the fraud being discovered at a later date. If, due to the numbering system, you needed to replace an existing birth certificate, the existing record could be replaced It very unlikely that anyone would order that birth certificate within that short time period.
If you accomplished it by dating, you need find a way to part without the young woman feeling used. Otherwise, she is liable to be vindictive and report the whole thing. Just start acting like she is the living end and that you will do anything she wants to keep her. She will look at you funny like and before long she will start taking advantage of you. Then you can be offended and not call her. She knows that she was taking advantage of you. Therefore, in effect, she broke with you and, in that event, she will not feel used.
If you cannot get a birth certificate, you will need to get a delayed birth certificate. A baptismal record is usually acceptable. I don't know much about baptismal records but I understand they are kept at each parish and probably not under lock and key. Get religion and volunteer to help. Do custodial work and/or office work. Be squeaky clean and honest. I don't know how the records are kept but they must be on paper. Twenty years ago it would have be a different priest and, if not, find a different parish. You can scan a record and edit it with Photoshop and reprint the applicable portion and replace the record. I suppose there should be a Godfather and you can find someone that will be your Godfather and sign a document that he knew of the birth and baptism. Find some transit or homeless person and pay him $1,000. For that he will not only sign a document, he will be willing testify in court.
Another acceptable record is kindergarden, 1st grade, or all of grade school. Find a small school and the records will be kept in a folder and not computerized; especially twenty year old records. It shouldn't be difficult to get to the records; especially when school is closed. It will not be like bank vault. There are no valuables to steal so the locks will just be simple inexpensive locks. You can buy a lock pick gun at http://www.lockpicktools.com/pick-guns/ and use a mail drop. YouTube has several videos on how to use them. From the videos, and with a little practice you can open a lock in seconds. Pick a folder, scan, edit with Photoshop, and reprint the applicable portions; then replace the folder. Even though the risk is very low, unlawful entry can be considered a serious crime so I must advise against it. However, it is something someone might do.
It is unlikely for a small school, but the school could have an alarm system with or without motion detectors and it could just be inside the office. Make sure nobody is inside, open the office door walk a feet inside and then leave and watch from a block away for several hours to see if anyone shows up. Next time, have a friend wait outside to watch from some distance. And carry a vibrating cell phone. If he calls, don't talk just listen and leave by whichever side he says after you ditch the lock pick gun without your fingerprints on it. It is a crime to be caught with burglary tools on you.
In the unlikely event you get caught; DON'T TALK to the police other than your name, address, identification, and phone number. Nothing you say can help but it CERTANILY will harm you. There is no crime in entering an unlocked public building. However, you have convicted yourself if you are foolish enough to tell the police it was unlocked. If you are naive and don't understand why you don't talk to the police--Google Don't talk to the police and watch the videos.
The only thing you should say is, I want a lawyer. If the police ask why you need a lawyer, don't be stupid and give a reason. Just keep replying, I want a lawyer. I don't recommend it but you might ask the police "Why are you questioning me?" in a tone that indicates you are offended that they would even suspect you. Then, whatever they ask, you can hand them your driver license and/or keep saying I want a lawyer. You can ask, "Am I under arrest?" and, if they say "No," say "Am I free to go?" Again, if you don't understand why you shouldn't talk to the police except to keep saying, I want a lawyer, Google Don't talk to the police and watch the videos. Saying I want a lawyer cannot be presented or used against you in court. The judge will not allow your statement that you asked for a lawyer to be introduced in court.
Anything you say will be checked out. What you don't say must be checked out with all the endless possibilities. That is too much work for what may be some petty offense. Pay a fine and be done with it. Martha Stewart's only crime was talking to the FBI. The police are seeking information to use against. Don't give them any. That way obtaining the required information requires too much work.
This will require two trips. Once to obtain one or folders and another to return the folder(s) after you have altered the information. The return is very quick.
Records from a licensed day care center would be acceptable. Usually they are small operations and fewer records with just a form listing the name and date of birth of the child and the names of one or both parents. It might be easy to get a job with them since they have a difficult time hiring male child care workers. After a week or two you could volunteer to help in the office and then input the information you need.
If you cannot accomplish one of the foregoing methods, you will have to create an identity to obtain a delayed birth certificate.This method will be adequate to obtain a driver license and an SSN but not passport.To understand why it may not be adequate to obtain a passport, see the page Disappear in the USA under the heading Disappear.I highly recommend that you assume somebody's identity to obtain a passport since you cannot predict if your new identity will create problems and/or if for other reasons you may need to leave the USA. Or perhaps, you may wish to take a trip outside the USA.
To obtain a passport, in addition to creating an identity, you will need to borrow the identity of a person.Your created identity should have the same name and date of birth as the borrowed identity.For instruction on how to borrow an identity and obtain a passport refer to the page Borrow an Identity.
To create an identity, you will need a story but keep it very short and you will need to create what documents you can. The documents need to be too difficult for the state to verify.You will also need a witness that can verify your birth.None of that is difficult to obtain.
Most likely, vital statistics will not issue you a delayed birth certificate.It will not be personal.It is just that they are government clerks and incapable of thinking for themselves.Therefore, they are following the stated rules.Therefore, you will need to get a court to issue an order for vital statistics to issue you a delayed birth certificate.
That is not difficult either but, unless you are a natural liar, you need to believe your own story. The way to believe your own story is to say or tell your story out loud at least one hundred times.You subconscious and in effect you will then accept the story as the truth.Therefore, when you tell it you will be very believable because your tone of voice, facial expressions, and body language will convey to anybody hearing your story that you are telling the truth.
When you go to court, don’t attempt to get by on the cheap.Hire a very expensive attorney with political influence.You want someone that the judge will not question.A state senator or the current or past president of the bar association would be ideal.
You need to invent a story that you are conformable with.My choice would be I was born and raised in a commune such as East Wind in Missouri.East Wind was founded in 1973 and is one of larger communes.Communes come and go and often have less than a hand full of members. They disband, the property gets sold and there are no records.
Continuing, my story would be that I was born at the commune; no doctor; and my birth was recorded on a sheet of paper and witnessed by several people.A notary seal would even be better. You can buy vintage embossed notary stamps on eBay. Likely that will be notary that is deceased. There are thousands of notaries, so no court is going to check it out; nor will anyone else since that would be expensive and they would nothing to gain.You can download the transcripts to create a high school record.Basically just home schooled at the commune and so there would be no way to verify.
I would say, I never knew my father and my mother, a pole dancer, left when I was seven and I just lived in the commune until age 17 when I left with someone to live in Canada.I just walked across the border, I don’t recall being questioned.And, I lived with a family in Canada until a couple of years ago.I have moved around a lot.For transportation, I would ake a bus or hitchhike and I would do part time jobs such as moving furniture, mowing lawns, and concrete work.
For a witness, a lady that could have babysat a few times would do.Prostitutes are good liars.Also, con men that you met and have hard luck story and want money.Tell one that he looks like a man you knew when you was a young child and lived in a commune. If he is that person, you would pay him $1,000 to tell the court that he knew me. Explain that it will only take a few minutes in court.In court he can say, your father didn’t hang around after the birth and your mother was a dancer and she met some guy and never returned .
Almost certainly, for that kind of money, he was that person.If not, the next one you meet would be.He can even be one of the witnesses that signed your birth record.With him and your birth record, you may not need to go to court. Vital statistics may just issue you a delayed birth certificate.Either way, you will get your delayed birth certificate.
With the delayed birth certificate, you can get your driver license and then a SSN.
An alternate solution would be to take the birth record and apply for an SSN. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will not issue you an SSN with so little documentation.However, they will issue you a letter that they cannot issue an SSN based on the information provided and you can use that letter to get an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN).It has nine digits in the same format as an SSN and can be used in lieu of an SSN.You can use the letter from the SSA to obtain a driver license.
If you have a need to travel outside the USA, you have your passport acquired with the borrowed identity. Just don’t use it until you are outside the USA and probably you should not use it in Canada. Walk across the border from South Texas in Mexico.
