How to Get a Birth Certificate in Grand Rapids, MichiganLast Updated: Jun 10, 2013 | By Veronica Smith-Jennings
Prepare to pay $10 for every search for a birth certificate -- that fee also includes one certified copy. Additional copies cost $3 each. If you pay online by credit card, you incur convenience fees between $3 and 3 percent of the total cost. The $10 search fee and the convenience fees are non-refundable, even if the birth certificate is not found.
Visit the County Clerk's Office at 300 Monroe Avenue NW in Grand Rapids if you are a legal guardian, legal representative or a heir of the deceased person listed on the birth certificate. These requests must be processed in person. Take government-issued photo identification and the necessary fees.Source: www.livestrong.com
