How Much Does a Birth Certificate Cost?

A birth certificate is a vital record that holds information regarding a person’s birth and can be described as an original document that certifies the circumstances of a birth.  A birth certificate is necessary to do many things in life such as get a driver’s license or a passport.  If your birth certificate has been misplaced or ruined, a replacement can be issued by the government.
