How long will it take to process my birth certificate?
There’s no easy answer to this question, since normal processing times vary so much between states, and even individual counties and cities. Birth certificate application processing times may also be longer than usual, due to a higher than normal number of applications. However, in most areas, it takes anywhere 2-8 weeks for your application to be processed after it is received.
The best way to ensure that your birth certificate gets to you as fast as possible is by making sure that your application is correct and that you provided all of the necessary supporting documents. If there is an error on your forms, or you did not include the correct forms of ID, then your application may be rejected or delayed.
