  • These copies sometimes have a little more information on them than the computer generated birth certificate.

Many people order more than one certificate when they place their order. Often the extra copy is kept in a safe place, or with a relative.

If you just had a baby, birth records need to be requested by the parents and are not automatically issued. You should order a copy of your baby's birth certificate to ensure that the information is complete and correct.

Filing a Death Certificate:

Utah law allows families to care for their dead without the services of a licensed Funeral Director. However, families that do not wish to retain a Funeral Director must file a death certificate and comply with state laws and rules regarding the disposition of human remains.

To begin the death certificate, contact the local Health Department in the county where the death occurred to assist you, or contact the State Office of Vital Records and Statistics for information on filing a death certificate. You may also visit State Office of Vital Records.

Marriage/Divorce Records

Our Vital Records office offers certified copies of marriage and divorce verifications for all counties in Utah from 1978 to 2010. However, if a marriage occurred in Weber County, certificates must be purchased at the County Clerk's office in which it was originally filed. If a Divorce Decree is needed, they would be at the local District Court. More information on getting a copy of your divorce decree, can be found at UtahCourts.gov.

These records are proof of a marriage or divorce only, with limited information, and can be used by any agency that requires proof of the event.
