In order to meet the needs of our community, Contra Costa Vital Records has implemented a procedure for mortuary/funeral home staff for emergency filing. On weekends and holidays, emergency filings may be obtained from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. This is not an on-call service and is only available during the one hour window. There is an additional fee of $50 for emergency filing. To ensure that the permit can be issued it is imperative that you proof-read your documents before submission; including attestation. Once the record is ready for registration please call 925-890-8779.
