What You Can Do:
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Vital Records Search, is the central distribution location for the issuance of birth, death, marriage and divorce records. These records are not released to just anyone for Colorado background checks. In keeping with Colorado law, only those with a proof of relationship to the individual or a “direct and tangible interest” in obtaining the vital records are eligible for access.
When doing Colorado background checks, a main family member, or the individual named in the document, with valid ID, can access the vital records. Legal representatives or probate researchers, with proof of their credentials, are examples of non-family members who are likely to be granted access to someone else’s vital records.
