Obtaining Marriage Records from the Delaware Office of Vital Statistics
The public can obtain individual copies of birth, death, adoptee, marriage and civil union certificates through any of the following:
- In person at any of three locations around the state
- Via a written request to the Office of Vital Statistics located in the Jesse S. Cooper Building in Dover
- Online through the VitalChek Network Delaware webpage
- Via telephone by calling 1-877-888-0248
The Delaware Office of Vital Statistics does not accept credit cards through the internet or online orders for records. For your convenience, however, you can process online requests for records through an independent company that we have partnered with to provide you this service – VitalChek Network, Inc. VitalChek can be reached either through its website, www.vitalchek.com, or by phone at 1-877-888-0248. An additional fee is charged by VitalChek for using this service, and all major credit cards are accepted, including American Express®, Discover®, MasterCard® or Visa®.
The Office of Vital Statistics also protects the confidentiality and legality of all vital records in its possession. The Vital Statistics Review Subcommittee, an interdivisional panel, reviews all requests for information for research and investigation prior to the release of information to others.
Heirloom Birth Certificates
Several years ago, in a collaborative effort with the Children's Trust Fund, this office began issuing heirloom birth certificates. Funds raised from the sale of these attractive certificates contribute fifty percent of their cost to the Children's Trust Fund for activities to prevent child abuse. The Division retains the other fifty percent to facilitate funding of the actual costs associated with the certificates.
