In Medical Examiner cases, the length of time may vary greatly, sometimes taking six months or more. You should be aware that if your intentions are to conduct business on behalf of the estate of the deceased, certified copies are generally required. At the present time, the cost is $10 per certificate. It is our policy to acquire death certificates for the next-of-kin whenever possible, or you may contact the county directly:
