Obtain Certified Copies of the Order
Unfortunately, the current practice of the clerk's office is not to mail certified copies. This means that after you receive copies of the signed order back in the mail, you will need to go back to the clerk's office and request a certified copy. Each copy costs $5. They will print out the Order from their computer system and then "certify" it for you. Certified copies will be needed to change your identity documents. Usually you will need only 1 certified copy, but having 2 won't hurt. If you were born outside of Arkansas and you need to change your Birth Certificate, you might want to purchase more than 1 certified copy, because the government office in your birth state may not return the documents that you send them by mail. If you go to the other state in person, this may not be an issue.
