Q: What happens to my birth certificate if the hospital is no longer open or burned down many years ago?
A: Not to worry, when everyone is born the hospital notifies the state office of your birth and it is recorded usually within 1-2 weeks after your birth which means we can get your birth certificate for you.

Q: My child does not have a drivers license or identification card?

Q: What happens when my certified birth certificate is delivered to me and some part of the information is printed incorrectly?
A: This situation is very rare but does happen. We have no control on how the information is printed on a birth certificate. When a name is spelled wrong or any information is incorrect it means the county or state has your information printed incorrectly in their records. You will have to contact the county or state to have this information corrected, we cannot do it for you.
We can only obtain what is on file with the county or state.
Q: What if I will not be home when the overnight courier delivers my birth certificate?
A: Someone must be at the address to sign for the birth certificate when it arrives. If no one will be at the address, please leave a note taped to your door stating to please leave the package at the door and please sign that note. If you have to send the certificate to your work address that is fine because someone will be there to sign for it.
Q: What if the state where my birth took place does not have a record of my birth?
A: If applying for a birth certificate and when we search for the record and no record is found on file then a no record of birth certificate will be issued. This no record of birth can be used to obtain a passport if needed. You will be charged by the state and our company for a No Record of Birth.
Q: Can you send birth certificates internationally?
A: Yes. International shipping orders need to have the shipping address left blank on the order form.
