A birth certificate registered one year or more after the date of birth needs to be registered as a delayed certificate.
File a delayed certificate of birth by sending in a written request along with identifying information for the person signing the request and any necessary fees. Your request must include the following:
- Type of certificate
- Name(s) as they should be listed on the certificate
- Mother's full maiden name
- Father's full name
- Date of event
- Place of event
- Your relationship to the person(s) named on the certificate
- Return address
- Daytime telephone number
- A check or money order for $16
We will check to confirm a certificate is not already on file. The fee for a search is $16 whether a certificate is found or not.
Send the request to:
