Guam Death Records

The reason why people would request for copies of death records like Guam Death Records would lie in the fact that as the official records of the government, these records are the best evidence that could be presented in order to prove the death of the deceased. One may ask why there is a need to prove the death of the person, and the answer to that would best be understood if one were to take into consideration the effect that death would actually have upon not only the family of the deceased, but also upon the whole world. Death, after all, is something that is felt by the whole world.

When a person is born, he is given civil personality, but it is only upon attainment of his age of majority that he gains capacity to act. Both are requisites before a person could give valid consent to a contact, but while capacity to act may be gained and lost multiple times during the lifetime of a person, civil personality is attained only upon birth and lost only upon death. Thus, before a person could enter into a valid and enforceable contract, he should have civil personality. Guam Death Notices, like all other death notices, places the people with whom the deceased had contracted with on notice that the deceased had died, thus, they are required to go after the estate of the deceased in order to make good their claims against the deceased, if they still have claims against the deceased.

Guam Death Certificates may be obtained at the state level only at Guam, but that is because Guam is not actually divided into counties. Before a person could obtain the records, one must first remember that the actual records may only be obtained by members of the family of the deceased, and those that are not amongst the family may only request for a certification, though a certification is often enough to prove the death of the deceased.

Actual Cause of Death Records may be obtained either through mail or through an in person request. A request for the records through mail would require the person who desires the record to mail an application letter to the vital records division of the department of health, and while the letter is non-standard, note that the letters should contain the name of the deceased, the approximate date of death, and the place where the event had occurred as well as the contact information of the person making the requests. The processing fee for a request, either through mail or in person, would be five dollars per record or certification.

Another source of death records would be online databases, though note that these online databases are actually not official sources because most of them are privately owned. Despite this, these databases provide substantially the same information as the various archives and they could provide the information faster and more efficiently because they are using a platform that is faster and more efficient than the traditional sources.

A request for records through walk-in request must follow the procedure given below

  • Head to the Guam Health Department and their Vital Records Section
  • Inform the clerk on duty of your intention to request for records.
  • The clerk would ask you some questions regarding the record that you are interested in. try to answer as accurately as possible in order to limit your search parameters.
