If a person was born at Arden Hill or Goshen Hospital or within the Village of Goshen, a birth certificate is on file at Village Hall. A person age 18 or older or their parents may request a copy of their birth certificate by coming into Village Hall at 276 Main Street, Goshen, NY, Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. It is strongly encouraged to call Village Hall first at 845.294.6750 to be sure the Registrar is in.
In order to request a birth certificate, a photo ID is required, which can be a driver’s license, non-drivers license, passport, naturalization papers, military ID, employers photo ID.
In the event a photo ID is unavailable, two utility bills showing applicants name & address would be accepted, or a police report of lost or stolen ID. In addition, a form will be provided to fill out when you arrive.
Birth certificates are $10 per certified copy, and a certified check, cash or money order made payable to Village of Goshen are the only acceptable methods of payment.
