Certificates required

A certified copy is a copy of a primary document, that has on it an endorsement or certificate marking that it is a true copy of the primary document. It does not certify that the primary document is genuine. It is only a true copy of the primary document. A certified copy may be required for official government or court purposes and for commercial purposes.

A non-certified copy is a plain paper copy of a birth record. Non-certified copies are for informational use only and cannot be used for legal purposes.

This service depends on the Vital Records Office, as this will apply to faster process times and/or faster delivery methods. If expedited process is available through the Vital Records Office, would you like to add this service? (Fee: depending on Vital Records Office).

For requests of additional legalized copies there is no Rush Service available. Rush Service only for 1 legalized copy.

Delivery information
Physical address required, as many Vital Records Offices will only mail to the address on the valid ID and some mail couriers do not ship to PO Boxes. Also, we do not ship outside the US. We can send the documents to an address in the US and then you can have someone mail the document to you, however, we are not able to do so.

For security reasons, the email address you provide will be used along with the Order Number to access your account in our webpage. Please verify the email address is correct before submitting the order. You will be given an Order Number after submitting the order.
If needed for legal purposes in another country, you will need an Apostille or a Certificate of Authentication. We can help! After you receive your certificate, please contact us via your My Order portal and we will inform you of the simple steps and cost necessary to proceed with legalizing your document.
