The New Jersey Department of Health’s Office of Vital Statistics and Registry has launched the Vital Records Birth Certificate Sex Designation Change Amendment application, a new online service that allows citizens to submit request forms and attestations to amend the sex designation listed on their birth certificate to reflect their gender identity.
The online service allows citizens to submit their amendment request online and upload their attestation and supporting documentation in lieu of mailing a paper application. This makes the process easier and more convenient for both the applicant and the Office of Vital Statistics and Registry.
“We are happy to be able to offer a convenient method for citizens to submit their amendment requests,” said Vincent Arrisi, State Registrar of Vital Statistics. “This new service helps make the process of amending one’s birth certificate to reflect their gender identity easier since the applicant can scan all of their documentation to the application rather than mailing it in with a paper form.”
The Online Vital Records Birth Certificate Sex Designation Change Amendment service is a product of a partnership between the state of New Jersey and the New Jersey Information Division of NIC Inc. The New Jersey Information Division is the official eGovernment partner of the state of New Jersey, helping New Jersey government entities web-enable their information services.
