Request a Copy of a Vital Record Online

There are independent, third party companies that process online requests for certified copies of vital records. Online services provided by an independent company may charge a processing fee on all orders.  That fee is in addition to the certified copy fee.

How do I request a record online?

Visit one of the following websites to submit your request online:

If you are not eligible to receive an authorized copy, you may receive an Informational Certified Copy of your record. Informational Certified Copies are printed with a legend on the face of the document that states, "INFORMATIONAL, NOT A VALID DOCUMENT TO ESTABLISH IDENTITY."

For more information on Authorized vs. Informational Copies, visit the Vital Records webpage Authorized Copy vs. Informational Copy.

**Please note that the California Department of Public Health-Vital Records (CDPH-VR) does not accept online orders. Customers wishing to use online request services must do so using one of the third parties listed above.
