Birth Certificate

The Office of Vital statistics in the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services has all the New Jersey birth, marriage, and death records. The fee is $25.00. However, depending upon where you were born in Mercer County, you may be able to apply for a birth certificate for a lesser fee.


FYI: You are able to apply for a birth certificate while you are still in custody and have six months left prior to release. Please see your social worker to do so.
If you were born in the following towns, you may go to your registrar’s office and apply for a birth certificate. You will need to call for the fee amounts.
