- The biological or adoptive parents of the individual
- The biological or adoptive grandparents of the individual
- The guardian or temporary guardian of the individual
- A legal spouse, next of kin, or personal representative of the individual's estate
- An adult child of the individual
If you were born anywhere in the State of Georgia, you may request a certified copy of your birth certificate from the Liberty County Probate Court.
A death certificate is a confidential document; therefore, only the immediate family of the deceased can obtain a death certificate, including:
- The spouse
- The biological or adoptive parents
- The legal guardian
- The siblings
- The adult children
If you have a tangible interest in a matter pertaining to the decedent, you can request a certified copy of the death certificate; however, the cause of death and social security number will be redacted.
