Beginning July 1, 2019, applications to correct or complete birth or death certificates should be submitted to the State Registrar’s Office of Vital Records. If the State Registrar denies your application, you may appeal the decision by filing a petition to the probate division.

To appeal the State Registrar’s denial of your application, you must file a petition to the probate division. Your filing should also include a copy of your application to the State Registrar, a copy of the State Registrar’s decision, any additional information you would like the judge to review, and the correct filing fee.
