As of July 1, 2021, regardless of the date the adoption was finalized, the adopted persons and the eligible relatives will be able to obtain the original birth certificate upon request. In addition to extending access upon request to any adopted person, the law also changes the process of how to obtain the record.
A person who is not entitled to receive the record upon request may petition the court for an order allowing such person access to the original birth record.
The fee for an uncertified copy of an original birth certificate is $ 65.00.
