Vital Records

Birth and Death certified copy

All Vermont birth and death certificates will be able to be obtained at any Vermont clerk's office regardless of where the child was born or the person living at the time of their death nor where they were born or died (usually hospital).  However all birth and death records are restricted to the person, relative, legal guardian, court appointed such as executor or administrator or petitioner for decedent's estate or legal representative.  An application for certified copy of Vermont birth or death certificate must be filled out and identification presented. 

                                                 Marriage certified copy

In order to obtain a certified copy of a marriage license, no application is required but we will need the name of one of the parties and the date of the marriage and must be in the municipality that issued the license (where either bride or groom resided at the time of the marriage).

If you wish to receive a certified copy of any vital record, there are several ways to request it:

  1. Stop by the office .
  2. Mail in the application with copy of identification for birth or death or the necessary information for a marriage copy, a check for the certified copies ($10.00 per copy) and a self-addressed return envelope or a note stating where the certified copy is to be mailed to. Mail the request to: City of South Burlington, Attn: Clerk’s Office, 180 Market St, S. Burlington, VT  05403

                 Non-certified copies of any vital record (birth, marriage or death)  $2.00

An application is required and can be requested by any individual and can be done by coming into the office, mailing in a request or calling the clerk's office for payment with a credit card.  The non-certified copy will be printed on white paper with a noncertified watermark printed on the certificate and no seal.
