What You Can Do:
Vermont Vital Records Background Checks
The Vermont Department of Health, Agency of Human Services, releases certified copies of all vital records dated less than five years. This search service is currently conducted for a fee of $10. For vital records older than five years, that you may still need for Vermont background checks, these can be accessed from the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration at (802) 828-2369.
The application sent with requests for certified copies of Vermont vital records must be signed. A check or money order for the $10 fee should be payable to the Vermont Department of Health. Cash is not accepted as a payment method. The court in the Vermont county in which an event took place, such as a marriage or divorce, can also often provide vital records that may be used in Vermont background checks.
