Getting A Copy Of My Birth Certificate
There are several ways you can go about getting your birth certificate. The least expensive way is to contact your state's office of vital records and request a copy of the certificate you need. Your state can give you a true, certified copy of your birth certificate for a low fee of $20.00 or less. This method can take longer than using a third party site, but it can save you money. If you want to get it quickly and easily, you can order it online for $25.00 to $60.00, depending on which site you use. Ordering online can help speed up the process, usually taking approximately 2 to 10 days to ship.
Once you have filled the forms, you should take the forms to the registry and the registry will give you a card that contains a serial number that you will use to pick your child's birth certificate. The birth certificate takes three weeks to be processed and the entire process is free.
