What is a Birth Certificate Request Letter?

This letter is used to request a copy of a birth certificate from a state's vital statistics office. By answering a few simple questions, a properly formatted letter will be generated with the correct address where you will send your request. 
The first step to getting a certified copy of your birth certificate is a Birth Certificate Request Form. Just answer a few simple questions and you'll have a professional request in minutes. Keep in mind that many states require a small fee to obtain an official copy of your birth certificate. 
Note: We are not affiliated with any of the United States Vital Statistics Records Offices, thus we cannot actually provide you with an actual copy of your birth Certificate. You will need to send the request letter to the appropriate office located here once completed.

When to use a Birth Certificate Request Letter:

  • You need to request a copy of a birth certificate for passport, social security, school, or other identification purposes.
