Iowa Vital Records
Please click on the appropriate section to find out more specific information about how to acquire copies of Iowa birth certificates, Iowa death records, Iowa marriage licenses, and Iowa divorce decrees. Please note that rules and regulations for obtaining vital records may differ by state and by type of record requested.

Please click on the appropriate state and records area for the guidelines, contact information, and procedures, and links, for obtaining the vital record you are searching for.
Obtain all Vital Records from the State Office in Des Moines, not at the County Recorder's office.
At the county level, all vital records occurring in that county (excluding fetal death, adoptive records, and out-of-wedlock births prior to July 1, 1995) are open to the public for inspection. County offices may charge a fee to inspect the records.
To secure a certified copy of a record from the county-of-event, applicants must have direct or tangible interest in the record. In other words, you must be the registrant (person named on the record) or have a lineal relationship to the registrant, such as a legal parent, grandparent, spouse, brother, sister, child, legal guardian, or legal representative. All requests or applications for each certificate must be in writing and include the purpose for the certificate. County registrars do not have code authority to have the following on record: 1) Single-parent births prior to July 1, 1995; 2) Adoptions; 3) Any record ordered seal by a court of law; 4) Birth, death, and marriage records between the years 1921 to 1941.
