North Dakota has some of the strongest privacy laws in the country. Birth certificates are confidential documents and not available for public viewing. Only certain people with valid reasons will be allowed to view your birth certificate. Some examples of people who might need to see your birth certificate include parents of someone who may have been born prematurely at a young age or has disabilities, doctors who may be treating you later in life, and government agencies that may be doing research on children born in North Dakota.
Procedures for obtaining a duplicate birth certificate
How can I obtain a copy of a birth, death, or marriage certificate? Call the County Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk at (619) 236-3771 or go to their website for further information.
Certificates are available only if the original record exists. If you believe that it has been destroyed by fire, flood, earthquake, or some other calamity, a copy may be obtained on file at the County Recorder's Office.
Birth certificates are issued by the county in which the person was born. Death certificates are issued by the county in which the person died. Marriage licenses are issued by the county where the ceremony took place. These records cover events that have taken place in California since 1910.
All births, deaths, and marriages within California count toward the state's vital statistics record unless specifically excluded. For example, if you were born in San Diego County and lived there all your life, but got married in Los Angeles County, only those births that occurred after January 1, 1998 would appear on your Vital Statistics Report. Before then, only people who had moved to Los Angeles County from another state could be listed as born in California.
People can request a copy of their own birth certificate for $12. The fee is refunded if the document is not needed for legal purposes.
How to Get a Birth Certificate Official copies of birth certificates can be obtained from the Snohomish Health District's Vital Records office for anybody born in Washington State between 1907 and the present. Before you visit, though, we should mention that not all births recorded in Washington State are required by law to be registered. Only those births that take place in hospital settings are reported to the health department. All other births, including home births, are considered private records and no longer exist after five years. However, under some circumstances public record requests can be made for these documents.
The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for minors (under 18). If you qualify as an indigent person, the fee will be waived. To check if you are eligible, contact the Vital Records office at 206-296-6500 or vrpd.snhdc.org.
The process of obtaining a birth certificate involves three steps: 1 determine what type of record you need; 2 find where it is filed; 3 submit a request. It is important to know before you start looking which agency holds your birth certificate. The Vital Records office only provides information on birth certificates, so if you are looking for other types of records they cannot help you.
