Los Angeles Birth Certificate Office Location County Recorders
Getting the certificate as a child : In almost all countries around the world, a child is registered immediately after birth or within the first six months. Registration is done by the child's parents or by designated guardians. The constitution goes further to stipulate that even if the child dies at birth, he/she must be registered.
Getting the certificate as an Adult : If you are over the age of 18 years and you don't have a birth certificate, you can apply for one from your area sub-chief's office. To apply for the certificate you need to have proof that validates your date of birth. This can be your identity card, baptism card, or a birth notification card from hospital.
