The Office of Vital Records shall transmit court reports of adoptions for births that occurred in another state, the District of Columbia, any territory of the United States, or Canada to the appropriate registration authority. The information contained in Part I and Part II of this certificate is required in order to identify and seal the original birth certificate and prepare a new birth certificate. Once the original birth certificate is sealed, it is only available upon order of a Superior Court. INSTRUCTIONS The agency or department handling the adoption should fill out Parts I and II, but the County Clerk may complete any incomplete items in Part I or Part II from the information furnished in the court record. When requested by the adoptive parents, the Office of Vital Records shall not establish a new birth certificate for the child. (Health & Safety Code Section 102640.) The adoptive parents should indicate in Item 14 whether they DO want a new birth certificate established (by checking the “Yes” Box) or whether they DO NOT want a new birth certificate established (by checking the “No” Box). The adoptive parents may request the Office of Vital Records to omit the specific name and address of the hospital or other facility where the birth occurred by checking the “Yes” Box in Item 15. (Health & Safety Code Section 102645.) A deceased spouse of an adopting single parent can be listed on the new birth certificate if both adopting parents were in the home at the time of the initial placement of the child for adoption. Refer to Health & Safety Code Section 102660 for additional requirements. One of the adopting parents should verify the information in Part II, sign in Item 16, and enter his or her mailing address in Item 17. The name and address of the agency or department and the attorney handling the adoption should be entered in Items 18 and 19. The applicable fee shall be paid to the County Clerk at the time of filing the petition in an adoption proceeding for the services required by statute of the State Registrar. (Health & Safety Code Section 103730.) For cases in which the petition for adoption was filed on or after January 1, 1972, and the individual was born in California or a foreign country, a certified copy of the new birth record will be furnished without additional fee as provided in Health & Safety Code Section 102710. For adoptions that occurred prior to January 1, 1972, or in another state, a fee must be submitted for processing the new birth certificate, which includes one certified copy. Additional certified copies may be obtained from the Office of Vital Records, but there is an additional fee for each additional certified copy requested.
