Emergency Filing

Emergency filing is for specific religious needs and it is a service for deaths that occurred after the county’s last business day. 

Processing time may take as long as 3 hours or more. 

The new emergency filing times are from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and official county holidays.

Please call (707) 386-0503 to request registration.  Phone messages are checked between 10:00 and 12:00 p.m. If you get the voice mail, please leave a single voice message with the record number, decedent’s name and the best number to reach you.  Messages will be returned in the order they were received. 

If you have any questions, please call our office at (707) 784-8060 Monday-Friday between 8:00 a.m-4:00 p.m.
