New Jersey 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. Certified copies are always printed on State of New Jersey safety paper with the raised seal of the office. Birth certificates are available for all births since 1919. 
  • Birth Certification – This variation is printed on regular paper without the official seal. It is clearly indicated on these copies that they are not to be used for establishing identity or other legal purposes. These are typically used for genealogy purposes.
  • Birth Certificate with Apostille Seal – An Apostille Seal is an additional seal required for certain certified records that will be presented to a foreign government that is a member of the Hague Treaty. These are typical requirements for international adoption or establishing dual citizenship.
