Bay County Certified Birth, Death and Marriage Records Online Ordering

You may order a certified copy of a Bay County Birth, Death or Marriage record online using your credit card through our only approved internet ordering service, VitalChek Network, Inc.

In the past, the Bay County Clerk’s office did not accept credit cards or online orders; however, for your convenience, you can now process online requests 24/7/365 through an independent company that we have partnered with to provide you this service; VitalChek.
A fee of $10.00 is charged by VitalChek for using this service in addition to the record fees of $14.00 for the first record, $3.00 for additional copies of the same record requested at the same time established by Bay County. Customers can decide from various types of mailing processes and pay extra fees for expedited mailing services. All major credit cards are accepted; Visa®, Mastercard®, Discover® or American Express®.

Other internet vendors are not authorized by the Bay County Clerk and may charge additional fees without providing state approved service. Neither the Bay County Clerk nor VitalChek have control over the services and fees other internet vendors offer and charge, nor can we guarantee the confidentiality of any vital record data or safeguard your credit card provided to vendors other than VitalChek.

To contact VitalChek for any ordering problems, please call 1-800-669-8312 Monday thru Friday from 7:00 am- 7:00 pm.
