Obtain Copies of Records
Requests for Recorded Documents can only be made in person or by mail. We do not accept requests for copies of documents by phone, fax or email. Some documents can be ordered online through an independent partner company. Details and a link to their site are on the Ordering Records Online page.
Please be sure the information you supply is complete and accurate. If you request a copy of an official record and we must do a search to find that official record and find nothing, we are not able to refund the fee. The California Statutes require us to retain the fee as a search fee. The fee schedule is available on the Recording Fees page.
Our location, hours and mailing address can be found on the Contact Information page. Check the County office closure dates if you will be requesting copies in person.
The Fresno County Department of Public Health can also provide birth and death certificates for the current and previous year only. See their website for more information.
