Same Day Death Certificate

Will I Receive the Certified Copies of an Arizona Death Certificate the Same Day I Apply?

In most cases, when applying in person at a Maricopa County Vital Registration Office you may be able to receive a certified copy of an Arizona event the same day you make an eligible application.

However, there are some instances when additional time will be needed to process your request. Such instances could include but are not limited to the following examples:
  • Requesting corrections to the certificate
  • Providing additional factual documentation to meet eligibility requirements
  • Need to make payment in the accepted form
