In the case of birth certificates, only those requesting a copy of their own birth certificate or those requesting a birth certificate copy of a member of his/her immediate family may obtain a one. For death certificates, only members of the decedent's immediate family may obtain certified copies of death certificates.  YOU MUST INCLUDE A COPY OF YOUR CURRENT UNEXPIRED ID WITH YOUR APPLICATION.

Penalties: Any person who willfully and knowingly makes a false application for a birth certificate is guilty of a Class I felony [a fine of not more than $10,000 or imprisonment of not more than three years and six months, or both, per s.69.24(1). Wis. Stats.].

The office will be CLOSED on Monday, May 30th, for the Memorial Day holiday.    FAXes received after 2PM on Friday, May 27th, or over the weekend, will not be completed until we reopen on Tuesday, May 31st.
