Data Collection & Analysis - Rush and Emergency Birth Certificates

Rush and Emergency Birth Certificates

Fee

  • Rush or Emergency service request is $40.00

As of January 1, 2013, a non-refundable service fee will be applied to each rush or emergency request.  This service fee will be added to the cost of certified copies of the birth certificate and will be collected at the time service is provided.

This service is for NEWBORNS only.  Birth Certificates may be obtained from our office on newborns when the hospital of birth has rushed the document with the emergency status.  Please make this request through the hospital birth clerk prior to contacting us.


What is "RUSH"?
If a certified copy of the birth certificate is needed within two weeks, it will be considered a rush. However, the Vital Records Office (VRO) will require proof of needing the rush for the order to be processed such as airline tickets or a notarized statement that the parents and child will be traveling by car to a foreign destination.

The VRO maintains the right to refuse a "rush" if proper documentation is not provided. Currently, most birth certificates are available within a month from the date of birth (usually less), provided the certificate is submitted by the hospital to the health department in a timely manner.

Please contact us at (213) 240-7812 if you have any questions regarding this service.

All other certified copies of Birth Certificates can be purchased from the Vital Records Office (for infants under 12 months of age only) or the Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk's Office.
