  • Note – In order to obtain a Birth Certificate, you must be a parent, grandparent, spouse, adult brother or sister, legal guardian, child legal representative or self.

Amended or Delayed Birth Certificates

In order to file for a delayed birth certificate or to amend your current birth certificate (adults only) you must have three of the following documents.  Each document must be certified and they should all have the same spelling of your name and the same birth date.

All of the documents should be at least 10 years old and one of the documents should also include your father’s full name and your mother’s full maiden name. 

For females all of the documents must include your maiden name.

The following are suggested examples of the types of documents needed and should not be construed as a complete list:

  • Your child’s birth certificate with your name and age or birthday

Once the documents have been compiled, please bring them into the Probate Court office.  We will prepare the necessary petition to be filed with Georgia State Vital Records.  The timeframe is usually 6-8 weeks for State Vital Records to prepare the Delayed Birth Certificate or the Amended Certificate.
