Order Birth Records Online


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 $30. (Express mail delivery times depend on the zip code, postal service limitations and if the request is not received before 11 am. Please note: No International Overnight Mail available.) 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.


  • In order to fully process your request, you MUST upload an image of your Driver's License or State ID right in the online form (or provide a fax or e-mailed image after you place your order online). Make sure to include the name on the credit card account that was used in your correspondence.
  • If you are not the person named on the record, or the parent of an individual named on a record, or you lack necessary photo identification, you WILL NOT be eligible to purchase a copy of the birth certificate online. Please call 586-469-5205 for additional instructions.
