New Identification Requirements!!!
Effective January 1, 2008, the Division of Vital Records will need proof of identity for all individuals requesting a birth or death certificate. These new requirements are based on legislative changes that occurred during the 2007 North Dakota legislative session. The new changes restrict access to birth and death records as a preventative measure against identity theft and fraud.

Because of these new changes to state law, we must verify the identity of persons making requests for certified copies of birth and death certificates. To accomplish this, we are requiring that any person making a request must submit a legible photocopy of a current driver's license or photo ID when making a request. Any request that does not include photo ID will not be considered a complete request and will be credited and returned by regular mail.

After you have submitted your order, you will be given a receipt number and instructions on how to fax or e-mail your identification. Please remember to include your receipt number on the fax or e-mail that includes your ID so that we can match up your ID with your order.

Note: The email address/phone number and password will be used to identify your shopping cart. If you add certificates to your cart and leave this site without checking out and then return later, you can key the same information and your cart will contain what you had previously added to your shopping cart.
