Can anyone other than the Mother or Father pick up the birth certificate for a new birth?

Category: Birth Certificate

The Father can only pick up the birth certificate if he is listed on the birth record.  Identification is required.

The only other person who may pick up a birth certificate is if the court appoints a 3rd party to have legal custody.  Documentation of the legal custody is required.

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.
