What You Can Do:
Georgia Vital Records Background Checks
Copies of birth, death, marriage and divorce vital records are available for Georgia background checks in person or through the mail at the Department of Public Health and Vital Records in Atlanta. These documents may also be requested from any county vital records office.
The individual named on the original document, or his or her spouse, sibling, parent or guardian may apply for a copy of a Georgia vital record. A legal representative acting on behalf of one of these persons may also make an application. The subject’s full name and parents’ full names must be provided with birth certificate requests that may be used for Georgia background checks. Photocopies of valid, photo ID, such as government issued identification card, plus a completed request form and the $25 fee, must be included in a vital records application.
