Obtaining a birth certificate.

(1) Certified copies of birth certificates are available through the state registrar or local deputy registrar. You must pay the fee required under RCW 70.58.107 and provide the following information to obtain the birth certificate:
(a) Child's full name;
(b) Child's date of birth;
(c) Child's place of birth (city or county);
(d) Father's full name, if it appears on the record; and
(e) Mother's full maiden name.
(2) If there is not sufficient information to find the record, the department will send you a written request for additional information and the entire fee will be returned to you.
(3) If you cannot provide sufficient information due to special circumstances, you will be given an opportunity to explain the circumstances to the state or local deputy registrar. If in their judgment, these circumstances would have prevented you from knowing one or more of the required items, your request will be honored.
