Judgment: Must include EDD, child(ren)’s name, expected place of delivery, all parties’ dates of birth, places of birth and current addresses.

  • SLC had previously had these reviewed by VR prior to sending to court- not indicated in notes, so confirm prior to proceeding

Birth Certificates: The original record will have all of the GC’s information listed, then that record will be sealed and a new record with the IPs will be issued from VR.

  • The Intended Parents will have to go to VR to amend the record and put their names on the birth certificate.
  • Intended Parents need to request from the hospital a birth certificate request form as they will need to present this form when they go to VR along with their certified judgment.
  • It is possible to get the birth certificate within a few days, after the hospital enters the birth record and IP (either one) goes to the VR office with a certified Judgment in person.
  • **If our office orders the birth certificates it will take 20-24 weeks to receive them.**
  • In 2019 VR informed us that for same-sex couples, one IP will need to be listed as mother, and one as father- no father-father or parent-parent birth certificates available! (Confirm before proceeding with any same-sex cases)
