A fee is applied if you DO NOT register within the child's first year.  Any birth registered on or after the child's first birthday must be processed by the California Department of Public Health Office of Vital Records as a Delayed Registration of Birth.

In order to register Out-of-Hospital or Home Births, all five criteria must be met:

  1. Identity of the parent(s)
  2. Pregnancy of the mother
  3. Infant was born alive
  4. Birth occurred in Los Angeles County
  5. Identity of the witness

For more detail on these criteria, please see:
