DISINTERMENT OF HUMAN REMAINS
There are many reasons to human transfer remains from one cemetery to another. Sometimes the final resting place of our beloved relative is chosen in a rushed manner upon an untimely death. Perhaps no family members live near that cemetery any longer. Or you may be in a situation where the family has recently purchased a family plot elsewhere and now desires that all family members be buried side-by-side.
Few attorneys are familiar with the legal process required to gain approval of disinterment from one cemetery for burial in another.
Our firm has experience in the delicate process of working with families, funeral directors and cemeteries to obtain court orders allowing the disinterment and burial to take place in a respectful manner.
