OK, thank you very much. Kindly remember that I do not get a salary here. Your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, before leaving the site today. Thank you!
ANSWER: You cannot directly apply for a delayed birth certificate. You need to first place an order for a birth certificate. If it is not found, the department will notify you, and send you an application for a delayed birth certificate. You will file that with the requested evidence indicated in the application. Unfortunately, there is no way to go directly to that application, without first making the order for a birth certificate. So while you know or think a birth certificate was never issued to your parents, the department has to confirm that before giving you the application for the delayed birth certificate.
You can place the order for the birth certificate here: www.nyc.gov/vitalrecords. There will be a link to order a birth certificate online.
