    • After filling any form you must personally appear, with valid ID, within 10 working days, at the Clerk-Recorders Office, located in the Hall of Records:
      55 Nelson Avenue
    • These documents will not be sent to you; you must come to our office to pick them up. All fees will be calculated and must be paid at that time.
    • If the certificate was not issued in Butte County, then the Butte County Clerk-Recorder will not have the document. Please order from the Recorder or County Clerk of the county where it was issued.
    • Effective July 1, 2003, California Health and Safety Code Section 103526 changed the way certified copies of birth certificates are issued. Certified Copies to establish the identity of a registrant can be issued only to authorized individuals, as indicated on the application.
