Amending or Correcting Birth or Death Certificates
Local County Health Department Birth and Death Registration offices do not make corrections or changes to birth or death certificates. All corrections/changes/amendments are completed by the California Department of Public Health Vital Records Section (CDPH-VR). Instructions on how to correct, amend, add/remove a parent, change a child’s name (requires a court order), change or correct the sex or make any other change to a birth or death certificate can be found on the CDPH-VR website by visiting the following link: www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CHSI/Pages/Correcting-or-Amending-Vital-Records.aspx.
