Pike County, Arkansas Vital Records
When viewing vital records, you are viewing the birth, death, marriage and divorce records of an individual.
So that birth records don’t fall into the wrong hands, they are not public until 100 years have passed after they are created in Arkansas. During this wait period, only the immediate family, the person on the record and legal counsel can view the information.
Death records have a wait period of 50 years, when only the deceased’s immediate family or a legal representative of the estate/family can see the information on a death record.
