Mono County Death Records

The death of a person is something that would affect the entire community that that person was a part of, not only because he would no longer be there, but because his death would set into motion some legal considerations that must be taken into account. Foremost of such legal considerations would be the closing of the estate of the deceased, and that is something that would only happen if the person is indeed dead. The settlement of the estate of a person is one of the reasons why Mono County Death Records, like all other death records, are very important.

A court, no matter how powerful and no matter how big their jurisdiction is, could not, generally, take judicial notice of the death of a person. It may be possible for a court to take judicial notice of the death of a person if such person is famous enough, but in general, death is something that would first have to be proven, and it is for this reason that Mono County Death Certificates are presented to the court. As the official record of the government, these records are the best evidence that could be used to prove the death.

The reason why it is the best evidence would be because Mono County Death Notices enjoy the presumption of regularity such that the mere existence of the record would be prima facie evidence of the validity of the same and the person who would claim that the records are false would have the burden of proving his or her allegations. Death notices are also either informational or certified copies, though note that the only difference between the two is the limited nature of informational copies, and that both would have the same information written on them. Both also enjoy the presumption of regularity.

A request for copies of death certificates may be done at the local level, though note that the Mono County Recorder’s Office would only have copies of records pertaining to deaths that had occurred within the territorial jurisdiction of the county. Any deaths that had occurred outside the county would have records in those counties where the event had occurred. It is possible to make the request for records either through mail or in person, though note a request through mail would require the person making the request to have his request form notarized first before sending the same to the office. Note further that requests made through mail would take longer because the office could not act on the request until it had received the request. Either way, the required fee is twenty one dollars per record to be requested.

Cause of Death Records are also available online through the use of online databases. These are mostly privately owned internet-based databases that could provide substantially the same information as the various government databases. The main difference would be the fact that these online databases could provide their information faster and more efficiently because they are internet based.
