We are committed to providing safe and secure solutions to obtaining sensitive vital records online.

Montana 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. These are printed on special safety paper with the state’s official seal embossed. Birth certified certificates are available for births as early as 1907.
  • Informational Birth Certificate – These are non-certified copies of birth certificates. They may not be used for legal purposes, serving only as informational copies of the birth certificate for births that occurred as much as 30 years prior to the application.
