Wisconsin Certified 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 given out this information, you are given a birth notification card. The card bears all the information given above. The birth notification card allows you to fill form A1. Once you have filled form A1, you are allowed to apply for the birth certificate. If you have a birth notification card from hospital, you should not fill form A1; you should fill form B1 instead.
