Unfortunately, you will not be able to get a Birth Certificate for free; there will always be a processing and administration charge, though a copy of the birth certificate will not be too expensive.

If you are in the USA then you will need to go to the Vital Records department of the State you are in or go to the State Department of Health website, the costs vary from state to state.

If you are in the UK you can go to the General Register Office website and order online, there the cost will be below £10.00 at 2011 rates. If you are having money issues then there is a benefit system that can help you in case of an emergency.

The welfare/benefits programme is set up for people who live under the accepted means in order to survive on a weekly basis.  As you have a child, you will fall under one of the elements of eligibility. If you are in the USA there are a number of programmes that can help give you cash assistance. The child support programme, childcare, food assistance, medical assistance and help with your energy and utilities. The same applies with the UK, there are also emergency loans but these can be very hard to obtain.. If you are in a dire emergency, you should try and set an appointment to meet with the relevant department to discuss your options.

You have to pay something to get the copy of the birth certificate. It is not much costly. You only have to pay about 10 to 12$. However, if you are in UK then you have to pay about 5 to 7 pounds. To apply you should visit the following website.

UK Birth Certificate
