How to Order Death Certificates
Death certificates are issued by the county where the death occurred. The process of obtaining required signatures and information for the death certificate takes an average of 3 to 5 business days. Many companies will require a legal copy of the death certificate to transfer property, valuables, or assets into a new person’s name. They will usually keep this copy for their records.
Price: $20.00 per certificate

There are three ways to order death certificates:

1. Order by Phone (Credit card only)
