VITAL RECORDS CERTIFIED COPIES
MARRIAGES, BIRTHS, DEATHS, DIVORCES
New Hampshire vital records are considered to be private and access to them is restricted by statute to those individuals who have a "direct and tangible interest" in the record. To view all of the disclosure limitations to our records, click on this link to our statute: RSA 5-C:9. Certain older records are exempted from these access restrictions: "Birth records more than 100 years old and death, marriage, and divorce records more than 50 years old shall be considered part of the public domain." (RSA 5-C:105).
In order to obtain certified copies of Vital Records, you must complete an application and pay a search fee. The current fee is $15. This fee is payable whether or not a record is found. Additional copies of the same record issued at the same time are $10.
