Birth and Death Certificates
(only for births and deaths occurring in Nebraska)
A certified copy of a birth certificate cannot be issued without proper purpose. You may obtain a birth certificate for yourself, your spouse, your parent, or your child.
Before proceeding, ensure that you meet the above proper purpose criteria (a request by the individual, parent, or spouse for the birth certificate). The statutory file search fee will be retained in the event that no record is located or the proper person has not requested the record. You will be notified in writing if no record is located or proper purpose criteria has not been met.
If you have any questions, contact Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services by phone at (402) 471-2871.
