We are still waiting for our son's amended birth certificate. Without it, if I understand our lawyer and agency correctly, we cannot apply for his social security card. Without his social security number we cannot file taxes. I asked our lawyer when we could expect it and she said "hopefully sometime in Dec".
So my question is: how long did it take you to get your kids' social security card in hand after applying for it? Did you take the amended BC to the SS office to apply in person?
I am really hoping that we can file sooner rather than later in the season, as there are a number of things that are on hold until I can file.
