Nevada Public Records

It can be time consuming to find the records that you need if you are not sure where to search. The State of Nevada has a central location where a person can order birth and death certificates. That location is the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health which is a part of The Department of Health and Human Services. The site allows you to fill out an order form online and order the records that you require once you pay the requisite fee.

Birth and Death Records

Both birth and death records from November 1, 1911 forward are available through the site at a cost of $20.00. Birth and death records in the State of Nevada are considered confidential, so they will only be released to a qualified applicant defined as a direct family member by marriage or by blood, a legal guardian, a legal representative or the registrant. This is to reduce the possibility of fraud and identity theft.
