Certificates required

A certified copy is a copy of a primary document, that has on it an endorsement or certificate marking that it is a true copy of the primary document. It does not certify that the primary document is genuine. It is only a true copy of the primary document. A certified copy may be required for official government or court purposes and for commercial purposes.

A non-certified copy is a plain paper copy of a birth record. Non-certified copies are for informational use only and cannot be used for legal purposes.

This service depends on the Vital Records Office, as this will apply to faster process times and/or faster delivery methods. If expedited process is available through the Vital Records Office, would you like to add this service? (Fee: depending on Vital Records Office).

For requests of additional legalized copies there is no Rush Service available. Rush Service only for 1 legalized copy.

Delivery information
Physical address required, as many Vital Records Offices will only mail to the address on the valid ID and some mail couriers do not ship to PO Boxes. Also, we do not ship outside the US. We can send the documents to an address in the US and then you can have someone mail the document to you, however, we are not able to do so.


For security reasons, the email address you provide will be used along with the Order Number to access your account in our webpage. Please verify the email address is correct before submitting the order. You will be given an Order Number after submitting the order.
Legalization
If needed for legal purposes in another country, you will need an Apostille or a Certificate of Authentication. We can help! After you receive your certificate, please contact us via your My Order portal and we will inform you of the simple steps and cost necessary to proceed with legalizing your document.

Our Services

Our service consists of sending you the completed Government application form with the data you provided when you placed the order. Also we provide you with your customized instructions so that you can obtain the certificate you need as fast as is possible. Remember to see the Vital Records Office processing times. 

In the state of CA, birth and death certificates are processed directly at the Vital Records office, so the fees we have to pay for the certificate will be charged in addition to our fee.

In summary, we’ll simplify the heavy task of applying for a birth certificate by providing you with the application form, the directions, and the information of other documents you need to provide to the Vital Records Office to obtain your document.

Vital Records Processing Time

VRN  is an independent private company (third party) service provider assisting customers in preparing their applications to request official Government documents by themselves. We are not related to any Government Agency. For more information about State’s processing time please refer to Processing Times (https://vital-record.org/processing-times) on our website. We keep this information updated.

Some Vital Records Offices offer a “RUSH” order service with an additional fee. If this option is available in your State, you can select it in the form that you have to complete.

Because user satisfaction is our priority, we do guarantee a full refund within 120 days from the date of purchase under the following limited circumstances:

  • If you didn't receive the package
  • If you could not use the application package
  • If your order item is not available

Notarization Process

If a notarized sworn letter is required, you are responsible for the notarization of the sworn letter in order to get the application approved by your state. The post-purchase discovery that your state requires notarization does not provide reasonable grounds for a refund.
