What You Can Do:
Oklahoma Vital Records Background Checks
The Oklahoma State Department of Health, Vital Records Services, has certified copies of birth and death certificates. When conducting Oklahoma background checks, it’s important to know that a signed statement is required from the subject named on a birth certificate if you are not that person, or his or her legal representative or a close family member. The signed release must also be accompanied by your own, as well as the subject’s, valid ID.
With proper ID, anyone may request a death certificate if the full name of the deceased subject and the Oklahoma county in which the death occurred are included in the request. The fee for a birth or death certificate search such as a document needed for Oklahoma background checks from Vital Records Services is $15. The processing time for mail requests is typically a minimum of 4 weeks after the request is received.
