What You Can Do:
New Jersey Vital Records Background Checks
Certified copies of New Jersey vital records are available from the state’s Bureau of Vital Statistics and Records. Certified copies of the birth certificates feature a raised seal and are printed on secure papers used by the State of New Jersey. These copies are supplied to the subject and his or her family members who apply for the record. Non-family requests for vital records, such as those made for New Jersey background checks on other people, will not be certified or feature the state seal.
Valid photo ID, a completed form and the current processing fee must accompany requests for vital records. Currently, the fee for a vital record search that includes a certificate, if found, is $25. Record requests that are deemed “No Match” will not include a certificate and the search fee will still apply. If you’re conducting New Jersey background checks, make sure to have the subject’s name spelled correctly to avoid wasting your money and time.
