What You Can Do:
Florida Vital Records Background Checks
Background checking in Florida state typically begins at the Florida Department of Health, Bureau of Vital Statistics. It’s important to note that in Florida, if a birth certificate is being sought by someone other than the person whose name appears on it, except for the parents or guardian, a court order is needed. As far as death certificates are concerned, anyone can request these records, such as for use in Florida background checks, as long as the death occurred in Florida.
