Office of Vital Statistics
The Office of Vital Statistics is responsible for maintaining and safekeeping vital records of births, marriages, civil unions, domestic partnerships and deaths that occurred in the city of Trenton.  Our office issues certified copies of the above events.  In addition, we issue dog licenses pursuant to Section 21-1 of the Code of the city of Trenton.
The vital records that occurred in other municipalities or other states are not located in the office of Vital Statistics of the city of Trenton.  Each municipality maintains their own vital records.  If you are looking for a vital record that occurred in another municipality or another state, you should contact the registrar of that municipality or state.
Valid photo identification is required.  Your ID must have your current address.  Only immediate family members, of legal age, can obtain a certified copy of the record.  This person must provide proof of their relationship to the person listed on the record.  In addition, a legal representative or guardian with legal custody or the person named on the record may receive a certified copy of the record with the official stamp of the city of Trenton.
Hours of operation: Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The office closes for lunch from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Hours of operation for applications for a marriage or civil union license are Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. 
To receive the records the same day, please visit us at:  City Hall, Vital Statistics, 319 East State Street, Trenton, New Jersey.  You will receive a certified copy with the raised seal of the city of Trenton at that time.  For more information, please call the Registrar at 609-989-3236.
