How do I get an Ohio birth certificate?
- • Only the person named on the birth certificate or their parents, legal guardian, or legal representative can order a birth certificate in Ohio.
- • If you are requesting a birth certificate for someone other than yourself, you will need to provide proof of your relationship to that person and a legal reason for requesting the certificate.
- • You must provide valid government-issued photo identification, such as a driver's license or passport.
- • Visit the Ohio Department of Health Vital Statistics website and select "Order Birth Certificates" to start the ordering process.
