New Hampshire will issue a new birth certificate upon receipt of a court order indicating that the individual has "had a sex change." RSA 5-C:87. Birth certificate amendments are made through the City or Town Clerk where you were born. Call the City or Town Clerk first to ask for the address to send the application, how they accept payment (cash/check/etc), and whether they accept the state request form linked below. To apply for an updated birth certificate an applicant should submit:
- A birth certificate request form - to request a copy of the new birth certificate (do not send application to address on the form).
- A photocopy of the applicant's government-issued photo ID.
- To change the name, a certified court order reflecting the name change.
- To change the sex, a certified court order reflecting the gender change. The court order should instruct the city or town clerk of ______ to change the gender on the birth certificate to ____.
- Applicable fees made out to the City or Town Clerk ($10 to amend the certificate, $15 for a copy of the certificate).
When a gender marker change is requested, a new birth certificate should be issued with no notation that a change of name or gender has been made.
