How to File a Delayed Certificate of Birth

Please contact our office to have us mail you a delayed birth packet that includes the delayed birth certificate form that needs to be completed and signed before a notary. In the packet, you will also receive instructions that explain how to file a delayed birth certificate and a list of suggested documentation.

Review the File a Delayed Certificate of Birth Instructions (PDF) so that you may get started obtaining the needed documentation. The fee to file a delayed birth certificate for any age individual is $30. This does not include the charge for a certified copy.

Note: The fee to file a delayed birth certificate increased to $30 effective July 1, 2022. The prior $15 filing fee expired at midnight on June 30, 2022.
