The first copy of your birth records in Colorado will cost $17.75 when requested in person from a local county office or at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Vital Records Section office in Denver. Same day service is available until 4:30 pm on any normal day of operation.
Alternatively you may order a copy of your Colorado birth certificate from the comfort and convenience of your own home through the services offered by Vital Chek. This service does charge a fee for use but allows for the payment option of using a credit card as well as expediting the delivery of your birth records in Colorado. Of course you may always send your request by mail as well. Be sure to enclose a check or money order in the amount of $17.75 and to include the proper identifying documentation in your request.
Effective January 1, 2007, proof of your relationship to the named individual on the Colorado birth certificate or direct and tangible interest is required. One item from the following list is required: a valid photo driver license or photo ID card, current school or college ID card, U.S. or foreign passport, temporary or permanent resident card, employment authorization card, military ID card, tribal ID card, naturalization certificate, certificate of citizenship.
Alternatively, two items from this list will suffice as verification of identity (though any item that has expired longer than six months ago will not be considered valid) for the purpose of getting a Colorado birth certificate, voter registration card, motor vehicle title or registration, marriage license, social services card, hunting or fishing license, pilot license, weapon permit, or any expired document from the list above. There are other secondary forms of documentation that will work as well; please check with the Colorado Department of Public Health with specific questions.
