Are Wyoming Vital Records Open to The Public?

Wyoming vital record laws are restricted from public access until a statutory period of confidentiality elapses. Per Wyoming vital statistics laws, this confidentiality period is 100 years for birth records, 50 years for death, marriage, and divorce records. In the meantime, only the registrant, their immediate family members, and legal representatives may obtain certified copies of vital records. Either way, the requestor must provide sufficient information to facilitate the vital record search.  

 

What Information Do I Need to Search for Wyoming Vital Records Online?

To request a vital record search online, the requesting party must provide the necessary details, including the subject's full name, as well as the date and location of the life event.

How Do I Obtain Wyoming Vital Records?

Requests for certified copies often require that the requestor completes an application form and present a government-issued photo ID to prove their identity. Where the requesting party is otherwise ineligible to access the vital record, a court order is required before the record custodian processes the request.

Publicly available vital records are also managed and disseminated by some third-party aggregate sites. These sites are generally not limited by geographical record availability and may serve as a reliable jump-off point when researching specific or multiple records. However, third-party sites are not government-sponsored. As such, record availability may differ from official channels. To find a record using the search engines on third party sites, the requesting party will be required to provide:

  • The location of the record in question, including the city, county, or state where the case was filed.
  • The name of someone involved providing it is not a juvenile.

 

What's The Difference Between A Certified Record And An Informational Copy?

Certified copies are considered legal documents that can serve various official functions, including licensing, business proceedings, and various applications. They are sealed (and sometimes notarized copies) of a record exclusively issued to persons who have met the state's eligibility requirements. However, informational copies usually go to members of the public for information or research purposes. Therefore, they do not have the legal authority to establish identity and are "unofficial" records, unlike certified records.
