Notarize Copy Of Birth Certificate In LA?

As a mobile notary that travels everywhere around Baton Rouge, I get asked to notarize a lot of documents. I can notarize so many different things, but one thing I can not notarize is a copy of a birth certificate in Louisiana! I wish I could, but it’s just not allowed. If I did sign a Louisiana birth certificate, it would be useless to you.

Since he was born in Baton Rouge, he was going to have a family member come to meet me to notarize his LA birth certificate. As much as I hated to say no, there wasn’t anything else that I could do except point him to information provided by the state.

Some parishes allow you to get an official copy of your Louisiana birth certificate from the local clerk of court, but most don’t. You can order one online from a vendor that is affiliated with the state. You can also visit the Department of Health and Hospitals for more information by clicking this link: HERE!
