Birth Records


Access to birth records is restricted. Birth records are available only to:
  • The person named in the record (if at least 18 years of age)
  • The parent of the person named in the record
  • A legal guardian who provides proof of court appointment
  • A legal representative who has notarized authorization from the person named in the record or the parent
*Exceptions to these restrictions apply to those interested in Genealogical Research.

Costs for the records are:
  • $10.00 for the first copy
  • $4.00 for each additional copy
If the record is not found to be on file within this jurisdiction, a certificate of no record found is available for purchase. The cost of the certification is $1.50 payable to the Lake County Clerk’s office.

Due to the cost and the inability to re-purpose the state-mandated security paper used to issue vital records, once an order for certificate copies is processed our office cannot offer any refunds.
