The issuing of a replacement birth certificate must be done by the state record department that maintains these birthing records for the state you were born in. In order for you to obtain a replacement birth certificate, there are some things you must have. Below are the main things you will be asked to submit.
1. Your Complete Birth Name.
2. Your Date of Birth.
3. Place You Were Born
4. Your Parent’s First and Last Names.
5. You will need to state that the replacement record is for you
The only individuals that can legally acquire your birth certificate are:
- Your Spouse.
- Your Parents.
- Your Grandparents.
- Your Brothers or Sisters.
- Your Legal Guardian.
Keep in mind that official replacement birth certificate records could require you to give more information, but usually a note detailing what you need with the above information will suffice. You will also need to find out what the replacement fee is so that you can enclose it with your letter. Without the fee, you will not get your replacement birth certificate.
