Additional Information

Birth certificates are not public records. They only become public records 100 years following the birth.

Birth certificates can only be issued to the registrant (the child named on the record) if of legal age(18), parent, guardian or legal representative of one of these persons or by court order. Court orders must be dated or updated within one year of issuance.

If the registrant is deceased, upon receipt of the death certificate, the birth certification can be issued to the spouse, child, grandchild, sibling, if of legal age, or a legal representative of any of these persons as well as to the parent. The birth certificate will be stamped "Deceased".

Please Note: The birth certificate for a new born is not automatically mailed to the parent after birth. The parent must apply for the birth certificate through a Vital Statistics office and pay the proper fee.

If the applicant was not born in Florida, you can go to this website to get information on how to order your birth certificate http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/w2w.htm
