If the child was born to a single mother, their birth records are considered “confidential,” where only the following individuals may access their records after submitting their application, paying the appropriate fees, and proving their identity:

Parents whose names appears on the record

The individual whose name appears on the birth certificate (registrant) if they are 16 years or older

Legal guardian, custodian, or conservator of the registrant (with a court order naming you specifically)

A legal representative of the individuals above (with legal documentation)

Representatives of Minnesota programs that administer child support, medical assistance, MinnesotaCare, and services under Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.23; Minnesota Statutes, chapter 260E; and tribal child support programs, Minnesota Statutes, section 144.225, subdivision 2, paragraph (f). (Employee ID is required)

Pursuant to a valid, certified copy of a U.S. court order (not a subpoena), releasing the certificate

Children born to married parents have their birth certificates classified as "public records," of which the following may obtain a copy of:
