Nearly 30-thousand Syrian children born as refugees in Lebanon are in a legal limbo, not registered with any government, according to the UN’s refugee agency.
This exposes them to the risk of a life of statelessness, deprived of basic rights.
Mother, Yasmine Hamdan, is taking her 11-month old daughter, Haya, for a check-up.
But what for some is a simple procedure has become increasingly difficult.
That’s because at almost a year old, Haya is without a nationality.
Both her parents are Syrian refugees living in Lebanon.
They applied for a birth certificate months ago, but are yet to receive one.
It’s an essential document which is needed if Haya were ever to return to Syria with her parents.
Without a birth certificate, identity papers or other documents, even basic things like getting married, going to school or finding a job can be next to impossible.
But her 26-year-old mother says the application process is daunting.
“My husband went to the Moukhtar (city hall), then he got back to the hospital, then to the Moukhtar again, then to the legal institution (nofous),” she says.
“Despite that, the Syrian government has not approved her birth certificate.
“We still have to go to the embassy. If we are late, we will have to pay around 100 US dollars as a fine.”
In Lebanon, the process begins when a child is born and new parents receive a birth notification from an authorised doctor or midwife.
The parents must then take that, along with their own identification cards, to the local mayor to get a birth certificate for a small fee.
Then they have to register the birth certificate with a local government department handling family status records.
Finally, they must register it again at another office, the provincial personal status department.
Each of those steps has its own fees.
But Haya and her mother aren’t the only ones finding it difficult to obtain a certificate.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN’s refugee agency, only 30 percent of the over 42-thousand children born as Syrian refugees in Lebanon have birth certificates.
In this Beirut clinic, mother and Syrian refugee, Khadriyeh Hilal, says she’s just given up on trying to register her child.
“My husband stopped working on the certificate because he had to work, and now he is no longer employed,” she says.
“He wanted to get a certificate from the ministry in order to cross the Syrian borders when we want to return. He wanted from someone important to mediate in the process to speed it up.”
It’s a problem replicated to varying degrees in nations across the Middle East, where more than 3.3 million Syrians have found safe haven from the civil war in their homeland.
By law, they are Syrian like their parents, but without the paperwork to prove it, they could become stateless in Lebanon and unable to return to their home country.
“A big portion of parents do not register their newborns,” says Mona Mounzer, a public information associate for the UNHCR.
“If these parents do not register their children, they will not have any legal documents, and after a while, it becomes harder to prove the children’s nationality and get the basic services like education other services, when getting back to their home country.”
Many parents begin the process but never end it.
A common reason being missing paperwork – such as marriage certificates – making it impossible for nurses delivering the child to issue the initial proof of birth.
Some claim the five-step procedure is too time-consuming for working parents who are unable to take time off.
The UNHCR tries to facilitate the process for parents, enlisting the help of nurses at hospitals.
The situation is markedly better in Jordan than in Lebanon.

Isn’t this the cheapest estate plan there is? Yes and the most expensive all at the same time.
Often in doing proper elder law/estate planning, we need to transfer assets out of our name and into the name of someone else or into a trust. So, naturally the idea comes up:
“I’ll just transfer my house to my kids”
“I’ll add my daughter to my checking account”
“I’ll gift this stock or investments to my son”
Three issues we talk about in the video.
First is taxes. A gift normally means the person receiving the gift gets the same “tax basis” as the original owner. Example is you bought your house for 0,000 and now it is worth 0,000. If you died and it passed by inheritance (or the right kind of trust) then your children would get a “step up” in tax basis to the fair market value which is 0,000. So they could sell it the next day and pay no taxes.
But if you give it away, then your kids take it at 0,000 basis and when they sell it for 0,000, they may be paying taxes on 0,000 in gains. Taxes can get complicated so get with your tax expert but hopefully this gives you a feel for how this “cheap” solution can be very expensive.
Second, let’s talk about creditors. If you give assets to your kids, and they find themselves in a lawsuit situation with creditors, then those creditors can ultimately get the gift that you made. The fundamental rule of asset protection is whatever you can reach in and grab of your stuff, so can your creditors and predators. Same with your kids — whatever they own and control (and if they are a joint or sole owner then they own and control) their creditors have access to it.
Third, predators include divorces, lawsuits (car wrecks, business deals, etc), your child having long term care needs, etc. A predator can reach whatever your child owns — and they don’t care what the “purpose” or intent was in giving the asset to your child. All that matters is your child owns it.
There are options to transfer assets and avoid some or all of these issues. Some are fairly involved and some are not.
Just giving assets away, however, is rarely a good idea unless this is part of a well thought out plan.
