  • The cost varies by state and the method by which you get it. Most states require you to send a letter with a form & check and they'll send it to you by mail 4 to 6 weeks later. If you are in a hurry, you can get it via, but you will pay an extra fee, shipping, and it will still take almost a week. Or, if you live near your state's vital record office, you can show up (with proper ID) and get it usually while you wait. That's the cheapest way.
