Michigan allows residents to mark M, F, or X on their state-issued birth certificate.
Contact Michigan’s Vital Records Department office to amend the gender marker on your birth certificate.
You will need to sign Michigan Vital Record’s Sex Designation Form (PDF) or submit a court order determining sex designation.
To update the gender marker on your Michigan birth certificate, you will need to provide:
- completed and signed application form (PDF)
- completed and signed Sex Designation Form (PDF) or certified copy of court order
- payment of applicable fee(s)
Note: You must update your birth certificate with the state where you were born.
