Kentucky Birth Records

Birth records like Kentucky Birth Records are some of the most requested for records from the government because these records are the official records of the government in regards to the fact of the birth of the person named in the record. It must be remembered that the fact of birth is more than just a person actually coming into existence, it also means that person coming to the rights that are supposed to belong to him by reason of his birth, and these rights are mostly familial rights. The fact is that the a person appearing before a tribunal and claiming to be someone would not be able to prove his identity, only the fact that he exists, and it is upon the identity of the person that the rights are attached to.

It is for this reason that Kentucky Birth Certificates are the first thing that the government would request from a person when the person applies for a government identification card or license. The story is also the same in the private sector as before a person could enter a job, he should first prove that he is who he says he is. In fact, even schools would require that the person prove that he is who he says he is by asking him to present copies of his birth certificates. These records are the best evidence of the identity of the person because they are the official records of the government.

This means that Kentucky Vital Records are afforded the presumption of regularity such that the contents of the records are presumed to be true and accurate at all times. The person who would present copies of these records, either in the public or private sector, would be under no obligation to prove that the contents of the records are true and accurate, as they are already presumed to be. Note, however, that the presumption is not absolute, and the fact remains that the presumption applies only if the records were obtained from the proper sources.

A request for copies of the records in question could be done from a number of offices, though most people would make the request at the local level given that the local level offices are easier to access, and the fact that there are fewer records at these offices means that a search would be faster. Note, however, that local level offices only keep copies of records for births within the county, thus, if the birth happened outside the county, the chances of birth records being found in the records depository of the county level office is very slim. As for the method of making the request, that would depend on the office where the request would be made, though it would usually be through the mail or in person.

Kentucky Birth Certificate Requestmay also be done online through the use of online databases. Note that these databases are not official sources, but the information that they could present would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the official sources, and they could present the information faster and more efficiently.

It is possible to make the request for copies of records by following the procedure given below

  • Obtain the necessary form and accomplish the same.
  • Attach a copy of any government issued identification to the accomplished form.
  • Determine your required fee and make a money order to answer for the same.
  • Make a self-addressed envelope and attach the same to the accomplished form.
  • Attach as well the money order to the accomplished form.
  • Send the accomplished form and all other attachments as may be necessary to the Office of Vital Records for processing.
  • Wait for the office to finish processing your request and send you the records requested for.
