    Default Birth certificate

    We just got our daughters birth certificate. I checked the details and the date that we got married is on there and it's got the wrong year. Anyone know if you have to pay to correct it?

    If it was their mistake then I don't think you would have to pay

    If its an error on their behalf I don't see why you'd have to pay to correct it.

    My sons birth cert came with the wrong info on it. It was our last name spelt wrong.
    So we called and they sent a new one. As long as the info sent to them was correct and they stuffed it then its free. They will check what was sent to them.

    Just call births deaths and marriages and ask. My guess is they keep copies of the original forms for some amount of time for things like this.

    If its their error you'd be fine but if its yours/your husbands error then you'll need to pay. And possibly fill out another form/stat dec or something.

    Yes this exactly. They keep a scanned copy of the originals for a period of time.
