Who may purchase a copy of a birth certificate?
The only individuals permitted to purchase a certified copy of a birth certificate are the person requesting a copy of their own birth certificate and/or the parents of the child. I.D. must be presented.
The Division of Health provides one certified copy only; they do not make additional copies.
You can obtain a copy by mail or in person at 2100 Greenwood Avenue, PO Box 00150, Hamilton, NJ 08650-0150. The fee is $15.00 a copy. If you choose to obtain a copy by mail, please send a money order payable to the Township of Hamilton along with the name of the person or persons, date, and place of occurrence. Must present I.D.
If the parent of a child recently born is a minor and has no identification, they can use their school id as long as it has their date of birth on it. Otherwise they must bring a copy of their birth certificate.
