/How do I get an error fixed on a birth certificate?

The Nevada State Health Division’s Office of Vital Statistics is tasked with processing all changes to birth certificates.

Complete an Affidavits for Correction of a Record PDF to correct a birth certificate. One of the witnesses on the affidavit must be the person whose birth is registered on the certificate or his/her parent, legal guardian, or the medical records clerk of the hospital where the birth occurred.

Read the detailed instructions that accompany the form to prevent delays. Mail the $40 fee and the completed, signed and notarized form to the Nevada State Office of Vital Records, 4150 Technology Way, Suite 104, Carson City, NV 89706. The fee includes a certified copy of the amended or new certificate.

Contact the Nevada State Health Division’s Office of Vital Statistics at (775) 684-4242 for more information.
