After the adoption is finalized, how do I obtain a new birth certificate?
Florida Adoption Attorney
We complete all of the paperwork necessary for Vital Records to issue a new birth certificate. If the child is born in Florida, you should have the updated birth certificate within four to six weeks of the date of your final hearing. The length of time for other states varies widely—some states are as quick as Florida while others can take six to twelve months.
