The Medical Examiner’s Office does not issue death certificates. Death certificates may be obtained at the municipal clerk/registrar’s office where the death occurred. An amended death certificate is also issued by the appropriate municipal officer after the Medical Examiner’s Office ascertains the cause and manner of death.
This usually takes 8 to 12 weeks but may be longer, depending upon the case complexity and required testing.
