New York Birth Certificate Types

  • Certified Birth Certificate – Certified copies of birth certificates that may be used for practically all legal purposes, including proof of citizenship, school enrollment, personal identification, passports, social security, and employment. Birth certificates are available for births since 1881. 
  • Pre-adoption Birth Certificate – Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation on November 14, 2019, allowing adoptees to receive a certified copy of their birth certificate when they become of age. This measure (S3419/A5494) ensures that all adult New York adoptees will have equal rights to information about their birth and biological parents.

Who Can Receive A Copy?

Under New York law, birth certificates of births less than 100 years old are considered “closed records.” Only individuals showing a legitimate and tangible interest may be issued certified copies of birth certificates upon paying the appropriate fees, providing proof of identification, and filling out the application form:

The individual whose name appears on the birth certificate (registrant) 

The registrant’s parent/s listed on the birth certificate

The registrant’s spouse, child, or others, but only by order of a New York State court.

New York Office of Vital Records

The New York Office of Vital Records keeps records and issues certificates of vital events, such as birth, death, marriage, and divorce from 1881 to the present. However, New York state does not file and issue records for New York City. For births that occurred in one of New York City’s five boroughs: Manhattan, Kings (Brooklyn), Queens, The Bronx, and Richmond (Staten Island), you will need to order through New York City’s Department of Health.
