When applying for a birth certificate, death certificate, marriage certificate, or divorce certificate copy, keep in mind that not every vital records office offers a comprehensive range of services. Some offices may also have a limited date range available. Call Columbia County Public Health Department before you apply to make sure they have access to the vital records you need. If they do not, please select another office from our directory.
Processing times, fees, and wait times vary by location. To ensure you receive the documents you need, it is recommended that you fill out all required documents before visiting Columbia County Public Health Department. We also suggest arriving early to avoid long lines. You will likely need to provide a government-issued photo ID and a utility bill or mortgage statement verifying your address, along with your completed application form.
Processing times vary by location, and you may get your records directly or they may be mailed to the address listed on your application. this website contains information on state processing times, so you can find out when to expect your records.
