Um, what about people who have no contact with their parents? That’s not too uncommon. If you have a confidence about what you put on the application I’m sure the clerk will accept it.  So grow a pair and get it done! 🙂

Perk up, buttercup! Lover boy can manage a few earlier mornings even with working until midnight. Unless he has some medically necessary need to capture lots of sleep, he can manage a few days running on 6 or 7 hours or sleep. He can come home, take a nap and then head to work. It may not be the perfect solution but completely doable and absolutely reasonable!

 

Chin up!

Ugh I’m sorry that sucks! I’d probably just make stuff up – put down whatever you have on your birth certificate if PA requires that.  They can’t possibly require everyone to know that information – there are plenty of people who have no contact witwh their father outside of what is on the birth certificate.  As far as I’m concerned, what is on the birth certificate is the most official and “correct” information as far as legal issues go!  Put “ASSHOLE” under occupation – see if they accept that! 😉  Cheer up hun, you’ll get what you need without him!

@hiroshymatetrastar:  So why don’t you ask your sister what the correct information she finally got from your dad was? I doubt it has changed since then.

I agree with PP’s about seeing what information is on your sisters marriage license. Also, even if his middle name is wrong on your birth certificate, it really doesn’t matter, it’s an official document and you should be able to use it as “proof” of his name and birth date. As for occupation, I would just put something super vague, I doubt they would withhold a marriage license b/c you don’t know his exact title.

@MrsWBS:  Best laugh all day!!!  What is your dad’s occupation?  “a$$hole!”  I am sure there are a lot of brides who would love to write that in.

Hello Fellow Central PA Bride! 

We just got our’s in Cumberland County last week. I looked up York County’s website and you can E-file online to help expedite the process. You’ll still need to go into the office but at least the bulk of the work will be done. Just go to yorkcountypa.gov, click on the tab entitled “Courts & Criminal Justice” then, on the left side of the page, click on “Clerk of Orphans’ Court” On the left side again, click on Marriage licenses and in the text on the right side is a link to file online. You’ll have to set up an account but it’s fairly simple from what I saw on Cumberland County’s website. 

As far as information that Cumberland County required, we needed our names, social security numbers, birthdays, address, place of birth and occupations (easy enough since it is about you!) 

For our parents we needed there place of birth (City and Town), address, and occupation. 

York County Courthouse opens at either 8 or 8:30 a.m. so you should have no trouble getting in and out before your work starts. We went to the Cumberland County Courthouse without previously filing online and it only took about 20 minutes for everything. I’m not sure about York, but in Cumberland County there was a 3 day waiting period so one of us has to go back and pick up the marriage license after 3 days although they hold it for the full 60 it is valid for so you can do it around your schedule.

Hope this helps!

Good Luck!!

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Even if it has changed somewhat, his name, date and place of birth have not changed. If they accepted whatever title your sister used when she applied, then they should accept it for you. This is not the kind of thing that gets audited. I think you will be a lot less stressed if you make the executive decision to go without your dad and just put the information in that your sister used.
