- You must provide current proof of identification to obtain a birth certificate the same day (ex: Driver's liscence, state issued ID card, school ID (showing the current year), Veteran/Military ID, prison ID with picture (expiration date needs to be listed), and a US passport)
There are several options for those who do not have proper proof of identification and still wish to obtain a certified copy of their birth certificate.
-Your mother or father (stated on the certificate) can obtain it for you as long as they have current proof of identification.
-You give a friend or family member permission by writing a statement authorizing them to obtain the birth certifcate for you and this statement MUST be notarized. That person will then bring in the statement, their ID/liscence, $32.00 and the application and they can recieve the birth certificate for you.

*social security card *current property deed
