For priority service, applicants may complete and submit the APPLICATION FOR A VITAL RECORD online. Online applications must be processed in person. For your added convenience, you will have the option to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT at the end of the application process. Fees for birth certificates are $28.00, marriage certificates are $15.00 and death certificates are $21.00 each.

Currently, the online appointment system only accepts appointments for individuals applying for an authorized certified copy of a Vital Record. Vital Records include birth, marriage and death certificates.

Applications submitted using this application and appointment system will not be mailed out.

After submitting an online application, applicants must:

  • Appear in person 
  • Present one form of valid identification (driver’s license or passport)

Applicants who opted not to schedule an appointment, have 30 days from the date of submission to appear in person.
