Who Can Order?

Under Alaska law, vital records are strictly confidential until they are released as public records. For birth certificates, this only happens after 100 years from the date of birth. However, the following people may obtain copies of birth certificates after providing legal documentation and paying the corresponding fees:

The registrant (name on the birth certificate) if over age 14

Parents on the birth record

Legal guardian (with guardianship papers)

Third-party requests with a notarized letter of consent for the release of information from the registrant or legal guardian

Attorneys & government agencies provided they have a letter on their letterhead indicating who they represent and why the record is needed. They must also provide supporting documentation to substantiate their claim further.
