I am trying to help my sister, her father was an American soldier unknown name. Mother was or is Irmgard Katherine Schwientek. She was adopted by a military family and raised in USA has been here for 47 yrs. Division of motor vehicle has now after all these yrs declared her an Alien and said they will deport her to Germany with nothing on her back and 50.00. She doesn;t care if they don't want to make connections. The problem is now DMV will not accept her translated birth certificate They say she needs contact with mother or father and to get a birth certificate from Germany. She has worked here, schooled her, has 2 children and 3 grand children here. They now say anytime they can pick here up. Time is running short if any one has a suggestion, help anything would be appreciated.
thanks and God bless you all!

Record keeping is a fine art in Germany and I would think getting her original birth certificate wouldn't be a problem.

PS: DMV doesn't deport anyone or enforce imigration law; actually no one does if you follow the news.

Thanks I will pass the birth certificate info on. We are in VA and it started with DMV and they turned her into imigration. THen she got letters from them explaing that she could not take anything with her and that she would be flown to Germany and given 50.00 We had said the same thing watch the news everybody stays here. I guess if you are suppose to be here then those are the ones that get sent back until the mess is settled
thanks again. By chance do you know what it would be called in Germany to get the records, like here is Dept of Vital Records

I agree but she checked on an attorney and they wanted 10k up front just to start. Told her it would not include any research, private detectives or German communicators. so they told her it go get really expensive. Also all the papers to file would be around 6k for that alone. We just don't understand how all these immigrants come in and get help. We are just lost at where to find her some help. I appreciate the correspondence an the suggestions

I said it was SGT or nothing to which I walked out and was chased down by that recruiter saying okay I win. I got back in to the reserves then eventually the National Guard where I still am a member as SGT/E5. Recruiter had to make his quota.

I was a Recruiter in the 1980s
