In-person customer assistance to change vital records is not available.

 Estimated amendment order processing times are currently averaging (4-6) months. 

  • If you submitted a request and processing fee, the date your check or money order is cashed represents the verification of receipt. It also helps you estimate the time remaining before your request is processed. 
  • Requests are reviewed and processed in the order they were received. If there are any issues with your request, you will be contacted at that time.
 We are working diligently to reduce the turnaround times. If your request has not been processed after  (4) months, please contact or call (971) 673-1147.
 We appreciate your patience, thank you.
