Is it illegal for spouse, who I’m separated from to keep my social security card and birth certificate from me?

I changed your question to the Family Law board where I think you will get a more informed response to this issue. Technically, she is holding your personal property against your will without legal justification. The police will not get involved. The formal remedies I can think of are costly and cumbersome. A family lawyer may have a practical solution for you.
This answer to your legal inquiry is based upon the limited facts stated in your question. Accurate legal advice is based upon an exchange between a lawyer and a client. The lawyer can then ask about other facts that may change or confirm the answer. Without that exchange, this reply should be considered limited in value. You should rely on this answer only at your own risk. Direct consultation with a lawyer is always recommended. Answering your question does not create an attorney-client relationship. The answering attorney is licensed in Pennsylvania and all answers are given pursuant to Pennsylvania law, unless otherwise indicated.
