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.
