Attention all Attorneys, Paralegals, CPAs and Financial Advisors:
California governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. has declared a state of emergency for the counties of Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Orange, Sonoma and Yuba owing to the effects of several catastrophic wildfires in the state.
As part of the declaration, victims who have lost vital records (i.e. birth, death, marriage, dissolution of marriage records) as a result of a wildfire are eligible to receive no charge certified replacement copies.
Click here to read a memo from the California Department of Public Health that contains further information on the program and instructions for requesting free copies of vital records.
From all of us at CLAS, please accept our heartfelt sympathy if you or someone you love has experienced a loss from one of these devastating fires.
