Birth Certificates

Florida Department of Health in Pasco County

Florida law restricts the issuance of birth certificates to those eligible applicants who provide VALID photo identification. Acceptable forms of identification are Driver's License, State ID Card, Passport or Military ID Card. Expired forms of identification will not be accepted.

Florida birth certificates are not public record. They only become public record 100 years following the birth.

Birth certificates can only be issued to:

  • the registrant (child named on the record) if of legal age (18)
  • a parent
  • a guardian
  • a legal representative of one of these persons
  • or by court order.

In the case of a deceased registrant, upon receipt of the death certificate of the decedent, the birth certification can be issued to the spouse, child, grandchild, sibling, if of legal age, or a legal representative of any of these persons, as well as to the parent.
