Legal-Eaze can obtain your NYC vital records for you. These include birth, death, marriage, and divorce decrees. We ensure that they are in the correct format for authenticating for the country where you plan to adopt.
Since vital records are confidential, you need to give Legal-Eaze your authorization to obtain these documents for you. Most adoption agencies recommend getting three (3) certified copies of each record.
Legal-Eaze Fees for Obtaining Vital Records:*
Fee per Vital Record (no extra fee for multiples of same record) — $90
