Correcting BIC status

Postby bubbalou67 » Sun Dec 22, 2013 8:21 pm

A child is not recorded as being BIC, even though the child clearly was BIC.

Can the BIC status be amended by a clerk in MLS? If so, steps please?

TIA

I believe you are able to edit the membership record to show that. If not, send an MLS message with the request.

But before you do, make certain the child was born in the covenant. Although you say the child clearly was, I can think of a number reasons off the top of my head why a child who everyone thought was born in the covenant may not have been. I would suggest working with the parents and the bishop on this one, just to make certain.

An example would be an adoption.

I already spoke with the couple. This is their natural-born child, born 2 years after they were married/sealed.

No disciplinary action in force at the time? Excommunication at the time of birth will affect the BIC status, even if they are later rebaptized. You can call LUS and verify that that's not the case. (Another reason I prefer to call and work things out over the phone.)
