Vital Statistics

East Rutherford maintains records of births, marriages, and deaths that have occurred in the Borough of East Rutherford. Civil Unions are maintained since 2007 and domestic partnerships since 2004. Records are kept in the municipality where the event occurred in New Jersey and with the State Registrar in Trenton, NJ. Certified copies of birth, death, marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships which occurred in East Rutherford can only be provided by our Department.

Certified copies of vital statistic records cost $15.00 for each copy requested. Certified copies of vital statistics can be obtained by mail and/or in person by completing the form below, enclosing a check or money order made payable to the Borough of East Rutherford for $15.00 for each certified copy requested, and enclosing a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return of the document(s) in a business size envelope (#10 envelope, 9 ½ X 4).

Records can only be mailed to the person on the address shown on the identification. The identification requirements also apply to walk-in requests - which can only be made by appointment only.
