How to change a foreign birth certificate in the USA?

All my docs have the wrong DOB which makes me 1 yr 5 mth older than I actually am. I was born in a small village at home so my BC was never recorded. But that was needed to come to USA, so my parents got a BC, but b/c of the way age is counted in my country, they put wrong BC. They know I have was born in the year of dog one month after New Years. If I go to an attorney and take it to court with only affidavits as evidence, would they accept it? Or do I have to change the BC from my country? I am in college now and I was around 8 or 9 when these happened so if I try to change it now, would it affect my parents who is Naturalized USC, my siblings, or me? I did not try to naturalize b/c I thought it would be easier to change with GCard. I have been in the USA for 7 years.

Any insight will be appreciated
