Ladies (Prefferbly Michigan ladies!) My FI is adopted by his aunt and uncle. LONG LONG story short he doesnt speak to them anymore. I cant find either one of our birth certificates but I’m mostly worried about his. We are getting marred in 25 days and still need to apply for a marriage license.
Can we get another one for him (maybe me too if I cant find it)? Any other adopted ladies or adopted FI out there????????

I used this site http://www.vitalchek.com/ before to get a new birth certificate when I applied for a passport. You should be able to do the same. I think it cost $12.50 but mine was for the state of Illinois so it might be different for Michigan.

I was definitely able to order a new birth certificate online a few years ago (from MI). http://www.michigan.gov/mdch/0,1607,7-132-4645_6245—,00.html
My only concern would be the timeframe…you’ll have to pay a rush fee. Good luck.

Yeah, you can definitely order new ones.
In case it doesn’t come in time, you should probably talk together about a backup plan – if the wedding is small pushing it back a few days, or if not, going through with the wedding but signing the paperwork to make it legal (i.e. have a JP ceremony) after the honeymoon.

I agree with other OPs. http://www.michigan.gov has all of the info you’ll need to order both of your birth certificates. I haven’t had to order mine (I hope my parents still have mine…hmm…I should check that…), but I know that it can be done. I’d stop in with the checklist from the website and everything you need ASAP to your city’s court house and get it squared away. I don’t know how long it takes to get them in, but the sooner, the better! Good luck.
