The form is self-addressing. It has space for the file number of your case. Make sure you write down this number in case you need to contact the department again about your request.

The form requires information about your birth. If your birth was registered with a county clerk, they will be able to provide this information for you. If not, you will need to search old records to find out when and where you were born. Your parents should know the name of the hospital where you were born, the weight of you at birth, and the color of your skin. They should not know any other information about your birth certificate except your date of birth.

An original birth certificate is required to be filed with the county clerk's office.

An application can be obtained from any state agency listed on the form or from the Oklahoma GenWeb page. The application must be submitted at least 30 days before you want the certificate made available. You will need to provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you want the records sent to you.

Heirloom certificates are issued by order of the State Board of Health. A fee is required for each certificate. This fee includes the cost of printing the certificate plus postage.

The following agencies issue heirloom certificates: Department of Human Services, Division of Child Support Enforcement, District Courts (both civil and criminal), Attorney General, Secretary of State, and Workforce Commission. Each agency has its own requirements for photo identification, number of copies requested, filing time period, etc. Be sure to check with each agency before submitting an application.

What does a certified copy of your birth certificate look like?

A certified copy of a birth certificate is a document that has the raised, embossed, stamped, or multicolored seal of the official state registrar, the registrar's signature, and the date the certificate was filed with the registrar's office, which must be within one year of the person's birth. The document can be sent by mail to any other state agency requiring proof of birth in order to obtain a driver's license or identification card.

The original birth certificate can be submitted to the county clerk's office if you want to create more than one copy. Each copy should include the words "Certified Copy" at the top left corner of the page. Copies are also needed when applying for passports, immigration documents, voter registration cards, and more.

An amended birth certificate shows changes that have been made to your original birth certificate. These changes may have been made by a hospital, doctor, or other health care provider. Some examples of changes that may be shown on an amended birth certificate include: name change, death of parent, identity of father if not listed on birth certificate, etc.

A certified copy cannot show changes that were not made in the original record. For example, it cannot be used to replace the original after it has been lost or destroyed. Certified copies are useful in cases where there is some need to prove information that can be found only on a birth certificate- such as a blood type or genetic disorder.

Are birth certificates stamped?

The majority of birth certificates are printed in either black and green or black and red. They will be signed by a local registrar or contain the mark of the government register office. The certificate is an official document that can be used to prove age, identity, and date of birth. It is usually issued by the hospital where the birth took place or by the doctor upon completion of the birth report.

Birth certificates are not stamped. They are returned to the county clerk's office where they are stored with other vital records. These documents are used to verify information about births, deaths, and marriages when these events occur in counties that maintain vital records systems. Without this verification, officials would have no way of knowing whether people were actually born, died, or married as stated on their records.

County clerks may choose to stamp birth certificates to show that they have been received. This is useful if a person is seeking identification information from several different agencies who need to confirm certain details about the birth. For example, a child might be eligible for multiple programs based on information found on his or her birth certificate. Stamping the certificate allows these other agencies to confirm that the birth occurred as noted on the original record.

Certificates are released to the public in early adulthood.
