Michigan statute says that Vital Records will issue a new birth certificate upon receipt of "a request that a new certificate be established to show a sex designation other than that designated at birth. The request shall be accompanied by an affidavit of a physician certifying that sex-reassignment surgery has been performed." Michigan Public Health Code §§ 333.2831.
To apply for an amended birth certificate the applicant should submit:
- The application form signed by the applicant
- A medical affidavit signed by a Physician, stating that the applicant has had "appropriate surgical procedures completed for gender transition to the new gender"
- A copy of their photo ID
- A copy of the court order for name change, if applicable
- Any applicable fees
