What You Can Do:
Nevada Vital Records Background Checks
The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services has birth and death certificates dating from July, 1911 to the present. Under the county and federal privacy laws, those accessing vital records information must be qualified to do so – usually by being the person mentioned on the document or an immediate family member. Nevada background checks must follow these standards and vital records requests must also contain a filled out application form as well as a fee.
The current fee for a certified copy of a birth or death certificate is $20. The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services does not maintain either marriage or divorce records. For marriage records, the County Recorder in the county where the license was issued must be contacted. For Nevada background checks involving a divorce, contacting the County Clerk in the county where the divorce was decreed is necessary to obtain the records.
