The Cook County Clerk's office keeps official records of births that occur in Chicago and suburban Cook County. There are five ways to obtain a birth certificate: in person, by mail, currency exchange, online, or by phone. Birth certificates are $15 for the first copy and $4 for each additional copy of the same record. The Cook County Clerk's Office is here to serve.
