  • Depending on where you're at, you have to go pick it up at the town/city clerk's office.

  • It really depends on the county of where you reside or if it's different then where your child was born. Call the county office and the department that handles birth certificates. Typically though it takes six to eight weeks to get them.

  • It will vary by where you live. My daughter was born in CT and we had to go pick it up. Try calling the town/city office near you.

  • Many, many counties no longer mail them out. Too many are stolen in the mail and the child's ID is stolen too. You may need to go get it.
