Justice of the Peace


Received a copy of my father's Certificate of Death from the Dallas County funeral home to review before sending it to Austin for finalization. The date was incorrect, so I corrected it and resubmitted it to the Dallas County funeral home. They rejected my change because the Wise County Justice of the Peace gave the Dallas funeral home the date, and only the Justice of the Peace is authorized to rescind that date.

Curious, I called the local Wise County funeral home and asked them what day they took possession of my father - it was the day before the date on the Certificate of Death signed by the Wise County Justice of the Peace. Apparently the Wise County funeral home, using 1970s technology, sent a facsimile to the Wise County Justice of the Peace which arrived after midnight :O

I have since asked the Wise County funeral home to contact the Wise County Justice of the Peace to explain how all this works in hopes he will contact the Dallas County funeral home so we can finalize a corrected copy of my father's Certificate of Death.
