State law authorizes the issuance of certified copies of vital records. Uncertified copies or verifications are not provided to the public.
State law also specifies that the initial $15.00 fee for a certified death certificate copy is a five-year record search fee – one certified copy is issued if the record is found and if not found, the fee is retained. You will receive either the certified copy or a letter explaining the search conducted and that no record was located.
