Legal Requirements and Documentation

When a loved one passes, there are a number of forms and documents that need to be filled out in order to satisfy state requirements. These forms are typically taken care of by your Funeral Director. For instance, your Funeral Director can register the death of your loved one for you.

The main legal requirements for a burial or cremation are that a doctor’s certificate or coroner’s order has been issued before burial or cremation, and that the death is registered with the Department of Internal Affairs within three days of the body being buried or cremated.

If you are taking care of this yourself, the forms can be obtained from the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA).

A Registered Death Certificate is issued by the DIA once they have been notified of the death. This usually takes around ten working days.

New Zealand law requires that the execution of a Will is subject to Probate, which is normally looked after by the person’s solicitor and not your Funeral Director. The Law Society or Public Trust Office can provide further advice on Wills.
