Online Birth Records Order Information
Order a certified copy of a birth certificate online by following the steps below. The cost is $15 for the first copy, and $5 for each additional copy of the same record after that. Online orders typically take one to two business days to process and mail out (you should receive your record 5 to 10 business days after ordering if you choose free standard shipping). Express mail is available for an additional $24. (Delivery may take up to 2 days depending on the zip code and if the request is not received before 1 pm.) There is no additional fee for using the Macomb County Clerk online order service. Birth certificates are not public record, and only certain individuals may purchase a certified copy of a Macomb County Birth Certificate.
