Birth Certificates

The Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment is able to issue certified copies of birth records for births occurring anywhere in Colorado from 1902 to the present. For births before 1902, the office can issue certified copies only on those births that occurred in Weld County.

Death Certificates

All Colorado death records from 1975 to present are now electronic and the Vital Statistics office can issue certified copies of these records regardless of the county where the actual death occurred. For deaths earlier than 1975, the office can issue certified copies of those death records only if the death occurred in Weld County.

Fees and Requirements

Birth Certificates 

Certified copies of birth records are $20.00 for the first copy and $13.00 for each additional copy issued at the same time for the same record.

Death Certificates

Certified copies of death records are $20.00 for the first copy and $13.00 for each additional copy issued at the same time for the same record.

Death certificates are now available in three types to serve different purposes:

  • Standard Death Certificate: lists ALL legal information and ALL medical information for the deceased
  • Legal Death Certificate: lists all legal information and NO medical information for the deceased
  • Verification of Death: lists LIMITED legal information and NO medical information for the deceased
    • This type of certificate is usually recommended for public recordings to protect the deceased’s legal and medical information

For questions regarding which certificate type would best suit your needs, please call our office at (970) 304-6410.

Requirements

You also will be required to submit a photo copy of your identification and proof of relationship to purchase birth or death certificates.
