I was born in Arizona at home. I wasn't brought to the hospital so I wasn't able to receive a birth certificate. I have a social security number but I haven't been able to get a birth certificate. I'm turning 20 and can't get an i.d without one. I'm having a wedding but we won't be legally married until I'm able to get a birth certificate to get an i.d to prove who I am.
You must first have a search done through the Office of Vital Statistics and if they do not find a birth certificate, then they will provide you with a packet of information to complete and send back for the delayed birth certificate. See the attached link.
