If you were born in the state of Colorado you may fill out the Application for Certified Copy of Birth Certificate form and take it to:
Denver Health Vital Records (tel. # 303-602-3660)
120 W 5th Ave.,
Denver, CO 80204
The office is located across from the Denver Health Medical Center campus, just south of 6th Ave. The cost is $17.75 and you will need a form of identification. Click here to see a list of acceptable identification.
If you were born outside of the state of Colorado the process is significantly longer, and can take up to several months for some states. You can order a birth certificate from most states online. If you find the official state websites online, they will provide instructions. A fairly reliable source for obtaining out-of-state birth certificates is http://vitalchek.com/.
Please keep your birth certificate in a safe place, and keep it in an envelope or page protector. Don’t punch holes in the document because this renders it useless!
