Nebraska Death Certificate Apostille

When you need to apostille a Nebraska death certificate, you will need to make sure to have a certified copy of the vital record beforehand. If you need to order one, your best bet is to go through the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. Here's what their website says about obtaining one:

The Office of Vital Records preserves birth, death, marriage and divorce records which occur in Nebraska. The records maintained by this office are issued as legal certified copies and are printed on multi-colored security paper with a digitally enhanced state seal. Certified certificates are used for providing proof of self and in obtaining records such as a driver's license, Social Security cards, passports, registering for school, sporting activities, transfer of property and for collecting retirement benefits or life insurance.


If your name is not on the certificate you are requesting, you must show proof of your relationship, for example: *When requesting your parents death record, provide your birth certificate, your parents names will show on your birth certificate as your proof. *When requesting your spouse's death record provide a copy of your marriage record. For any other request contact our office at 402-471-2871 *For genealogical use, per regulation 3-004.06 - Only birth and death records are available for request. To qualify for a birth record you must show proof of death and the death must have occurred 50 years prior to your request. Show Less

You may only get a death certificate for your spouse, your parent, or your child.
