Are Wyoming Vital Records Open to The Public?

The public record laws of Wyoming require that all vital records be restricted from public access until a specific period has elapsed. In keeping with these laws, vital records are closed for a minimum of 50 years. Within this period, the only persons eligible to access these records are the registrant, their immediate family members and legally authorized parties. Following the completion of this restriction period, the records become open to the public. However, requests for public records are usually only processed if the requestor can provide sufficient information with which to facilitate the record search.

What Do I Need to Obtain Wyoming Vital Records?

Where an information copy is being requested, no additional documents are required (besides a written application) unless specifically requested by the record custodian. However, requests for certified copies often require that the requestor confirm their identity and eligibility to access said record. Requestors are usually required to present a government-issued ID to prove their identity. Where the requesting party is otherwise ineligible to access the record a court-order may also be required before the request is processed. In addition to this, record custodians may also require supporting documents such as a written and notarized permission from the subject of the record and relationship-proving documents (such as a birth certificate).

 

What’s the Difference Between a Certified Record and Informational Copy?

Certified copies are considered legal documents which can be used for a variety of official functions including licencing, business proceedings and various applications. They are sealed (and sometimes notarized copies) of a record which are exclusively issued to persons who have met the states eligibility requirements. However, informational copies are usually issued to members of the public for information or research purposes. Unlike certified records they do not have the legal authority to establish identity and as such, are deemed ‘unofficial’ records.
