Missouri Adoptee Rights Act

Missouri Birth Certificate Access 

Thanks to State Representative Don Phillips & Missouri Adoptee Rights Movement!  August 28, 2016 The Missouri Adoptee Rights Act went into effect.  Missouri born adopted adults will finally be allowed to receive a copy of their own original birth certificate without ​a court order.

 

Note: If you are the descendant of a deceased adoptee, and you are interested in getting a copy of the adoptee's birth certificate please e-mail missouriadopteerights@gmail.com to be added to the update list and get information on how to obtain identifying information from the other records.  At this time you are not allowed to get a copy of the adoptee's original birth certificate without obtaining a court order. 

If you were born before 1941

House Bill 1599, The Missouri Adoptee Rights Act, became law on August 28, 2016.  Adopted adults who were born in Missouri, before 1941, may now request a copy of their unaltered original birth certificate

 

There is a fee for the copy of the original birth certificate that is the same as the fee for the amended birth certificate (currently in 2017 it is $15). 

If you were born after 1940

Adopted adults who were born in Missouri, after 1940, will be able to submit their requests starting on January 2, 2018.  You may make your request by mail or in person.  

 

There is a fee for the copy of the original birth certificate that is the same as the fee for the amended birth certificate (currently in 2017 it is $15).
