What if I am NOT a U.S. citizen? You only need to provide the same documents that were required before. Nothing has changed. How can I get proof of citizenship?
If you were born in California, the county may be able to get your birth record. (A birth record is proof of citizenship.) Fill out a Request for California Birth Record to ask the county to request your birth record. Then, mail or take this form to your local social services office. If a birth record cannot be found, you will need to provide another proof of citizenship. Ask your county about getting proof of citizenship if you were not born in California. Contact the county to see if they have found a birth record match for you before you pay for a birth certificate.
