Request Letter for a Copy of Birth Certificate

Birth certificate is an official and legal document that is used to record the birth details of an individual. It is one of the first documents that are made after one is born and keeps having importance until an alternate document to be used in its place is issued. Because the document is important, it should be kept with utmost care. Sometimes, even though kept carefully important documents are lost. When such an incident occurs, it is preferred to request a copy of that document from the authorities as soon as possible. The birth certificate however is not always requested by an individual for himself. This request can be made if the copy of someone else’s birth certificate is required for the purpose of verification, research, investigation etc. However, the native laws should be kept under consideration regarding issuance. Below is a sample letter that can be used to request a copy of birth certificate.
