  3. Rush Service

Some states’ vital records offices offer an expedited application process called rush service. You can opt for rush service for an additional fee and get a copy of your vital record faster. In some states, you can get a copy in as little as 2-3 days.

However, keep in mind that not all rush service is the same. While some states offer truly expedited processing times, other states simply provide a rush shipping option, and some actually provide both. In addition, many states do not have any type of rush service at all. To find out what your state offers, you can contact your state vital records office.
