For vital records originated in the City of Plattsburgh, the fees and response to you in receiving a copy of a document are less than applying through the NY State Health Department. Please print the appropriate application form for your request, submit along with the proper identification indicated on application, and a money order or certified bank check in the amount of $10.00 per document,(we are currently not accepting personal checks) to:
41 City Hall Place
Plattsburgh, NY 12901
While not a requirement, for the return of a single document, we would request that you furnish a self-addressed, stamped envelope. The return of multiple documents may require additional postage.
If no record is on file, a No Record Certification is issued and the fee is not refunded. We cannot verify in advance as to whether a record is or is not on file.
PLEASE NOTE IF APPLICATION DOES NOT HAVE A SIGNATURE, THE APPLICATION AND MONEY WILL BE RETURNED.

For Your Convenience
As conditions and requirements are sometimes overlapping and convoluted, you may wish to contact us directly by phone during normal business hours (below); most times, a phone conversation can speed your application process (we’ll know the circumstances and you’ll know exactly what is required to receive the document). You may request general information about our records by email.
