My father-in-law does not have a copy of the birth certificate, nor can any one of his family find it in his previous residences.
Another issue is with Russian Law, he has to be present in person to receive the birth certificate.
How about this option, can you do a Russian power of attorney digitally so that my brother in law can receive the birth certificate in place of his father?
Thank you for your time
If your father-in-law doesn't have a copy of birth certificate, in this case, please provide me detailed information: his full name, his date and place of birth, and names of his parents.
He doesn't have to present in ZAGS personally, he can act through his authorized representative. If you have somebody in this region, I can prepare the power of attorney, but it will be physical power of attorney, not a digital. However, I am not sure that ZAGSes are working for public during pandemic of coronavirus. But you can take a risk and check. Otherwise, I can obtain Birth certificate for your father-in-law.
