What You Can Do:
Virginia Vital Records Background Checks
The Virginia Department of Health, Office of Vital Records and Health Statistics, has birth, death, marriage and divorce documents available to anyone it grants a release. To apply for a vital record for Virginia background checks, a form available from the Office must be filled out, and include what the requester’s relationship is to the person whose name appears on the records. The reason the Virginia background check vital record information is wanted must also be written on the form and the requester must also submit a copy of his or her valid ID.
The fee for all certificate searches, whether birth, death, marriage or divorce, is $12. The fee must be paid for the search, even if no record is found. Some people who do Virginia background checks pay an online service to save time. The fee will typically be greater than doing self-directed background searching for Virginia vital records, but the time spent looking for the needed information is also saved.
