Birth certificate issuance at home birth


On the basis of the certification made in the birth register , a birth certificate for the home birth can be issued upon request.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the municipality, the Joint Community and the city in whose jurisdiction the child was born. As a rule, this task is incumbent on the registry office.

Which documents are required?

  • in the case of married parents
    • Birth certificates
    • marriage certificate or a certified imprint from the marriage register,
  • in the case of unmarried parents
    • Mother's birth certificate
    • if paternity has already been recognised:
      • Declarations on acknowledgement of paternity
      • Father's birth certificate
      • if applicable, the custody declarations
  • Identity card, passport or a recognized passport replacement document of the parents
  • a certificate of birth issued by a doctor or midwife or maternity nurse, if they were present at the birth.

A marriage certificate must also be presented if the marriage is dissolved.

What are the fees?

Fees may apply. Please contact the relevant authority.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The birth of a child must be reported to the competent authority within one week.

The date of birth is not included in the calculation of the notification period.
