Utah Office of Vital Records will issue an amended birth certificate upon receipt of a court order. "The amendment shall be registered with and become a part of the original certificate and a certified copy shall be issued to the applicant without additional cost." UT Code Ann. § 26-2-11.
To apply for an updated birth certificate, applicant should submit:
- a completed birth certificate request form
- a certified copy of the court ordered name change to update the name, and/or the court ordered gender change to update the gender marker
- payment of the applicable fees
To obtain a court order for gender change to update your Utah birth certificate, you must petition the court for a court order. There is no formalized court process, but advocates have created these sample name and gender change forms based on the name change forms. In order to get a birth certificate issued that is not marked as amended, ask the judge to specify on the order that a new birth certificate be re-issued. The petition must be accompanied by a Certification Regarding Sex Offender Registry. Along with the petition you should submit as evidence of your gender transition a statement or statements from medical and/or mental health providers. The standard for what is required depends on the judge and varies by county.
