At Vital Records, we issue certified copies of birth certificates for all persons born in Bridgeport, CT. The fee for each certified copy is $20. A smaller, pocket-size copy (not a legal document) is available for $15. All records released from this office are certified. Telephone or email verification of any information concerning the birth or birth record of a person is prohibited by law.
Please consult our list of acceptable forms of identification for obtaining a birth certificate.
Because the City of Bridgeport does not accept telephone credit cards or online orders, we have partnered with an independent company to provide this service. You may choose to use the VitalChek Express Service, (www.vitalchek.com) to complete the entire process online. An additional fee is charged for using this service, and all major credit cards are accepted, including American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.
