RALEIGH, N.C. — It will soon cost more to prove that a person was born, married, divorced or died in North Carolina.
Under the new state budget, fees for one copy of a birth, death, marriage and divorce certificate will increase from $15 to $24, starting Monday. The fee for additional copies will remain at $15.
The cost for a search of such records even if no copy is made will also rise to $24.
New forms requesting copies of certificates are available online from the North Carolina Vital Records. Forms mailed or postmarked from Aug. 24 must include the new fee, or they will be returned.
Vital records are also available from the local Register of Deeds in the county where the event took place.
