The birth of a person is something that the world should be interested in, not only because it adds one more person to the number of humans that are alive, but also because of the fact that the birth of a person is something that would not only give existence to that person who is born, but would also give that person who is born certain rights and responsibilities, and duties and obligations that would be binding upon the whole world. This is the reason why birth records like Colorado Birth Certificate are some of the most requested for records from the government.
As the official records of the government, these records are the best evidence that one could provide in order to prove the existence of a person. It must be remembered that existence is not merely the fact that a person exists, it also means that that person who exists is entitled to certain rights and that entitlement to those rights attaches upon the person no matter where he goes. When one talks about this, it does not mean the inherent rights that all human beings are supposed to be entitled to, rather, it talks about the rights that a person is entitled to because he is descended from where he is descended. These bundles of rights include the right to receive support, the right to use the surname of either his father or his mother, and, lastly, the right to succeed.
There are times when the right of the person to these things would be questioned, and it is in instances like these that birth records find one of their uses. As the official records of the government, it would be the burden of the party who would claim that the records are false to prove their contention through the use of competent evidence. The party who would present the records in question need not do so because as far as the tribunal is concerned, for as long as the records that are being presented came from the official sources and in the absent of competent evidence to the contrary, the records in question are true and accurate at all times.
This is the reason why it is better to make the request for copies of the records in question from the official sources which could be found either at the local level or the state level. Most requests are coursed through the local level as there are fewer records here that would have to be searched, and that would usually translate to a faster search time. Note, however, that the reason that there are fewer records here would be because of the fact that local level offices only keep copies for births that occurred within their jurisdiction, thus, it is possible that the records that would be the target of the search could not be found here. The method that one would use would depend on the office where the request would be made.
Colorado Birth Certificates could also be requested online through the use of online databases. These online databases are not official sources, but the information that they could provide would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the official sources, and they could present the information in question faster and more efficiently.
