Well first off, it isn't the morgue who obtains these dental records. Dental records and all medical records are confidential until the department of health and general medical council, including police and the court system mandate that the records be released. Once they are released, they are sent to a coroner or medical examiner who specializes in these types of cases. Most of the cases that need a match between a deceased and dental records are legally binding, and the medical examiner chosen to do the investigation and match are usually chosen through the local legal system because of privacy restrictions. The way for the police and coroners to find who our doctors are is to contact the department of health and general medical council where all document of health insurance and free government support are able to be searched. hope this helps.

Malcolm Originally Answered: How can i access my divorce records in another state?
Well do you have a copy of what you signed? It would seem fairly simple. If you got divorced the court should have sent you a true copy of the final decree. Nonetheless if you know what county your ex filed in, then you can contact the clerk of the court there, or check on line to see if they have an online docket. But without knowing where it was filed or should have been filed, no one here can give you any specific direction. Only vague or general ideas. Typically divorces are filed in circuit or district courts in the state court system. Sometimes in a county court. Because each state has a slightly different system we can't answer for sure. But if the filer lived in a city, then chances are it would be in the court that covers that city. That's the best anyone can tell you right now because we don't know where it might have been filed.

Hey..call the clerks office (Clerk of the Court) for the county that you were divorced in that state...The divorce is public record and should be available to obtain a copy...You may be able to sweet talk a clerk into making a copy and either faxng to you or mailing..Of course they will be a fee.. If all else calll the attorney that handled the divorce and ask for a copy...

The medical examiner does not need a warrant to get access to medical or dental records when they are investigating a death that falls within their legal jurisdiction. All jurisdictions have laws that give the medical examiner or coroner access to records of patients whose deaths they are investigating and in all cases, the responsibility for establishing the identity of an unidentified person rests with the ME. If a person is reported missing, the family provides information about the person's dentist as part of the missing person report. If someone is missing and there is a high probability of a crime, (for example, a witnessed abduction or signs of a struggle in a residence), the police might actually retrieve the records and put them with the missing person case file in case many years go by before the person's remains are located. In other cases, the ME might interview the family to see if they know who the person's dentist is, he might contact the insurance company to see what dentist might have filed claims for the decedent, and I can tell you from personal experience that more than one ME has sat down with the phone book and starting with the A's, called every dentist listed trying to find who treated that person in life.And actually, virtually any bodily x-ray can be used.

Jerahmiel Originally Answered: Can a creditor (legally) access my phone records?
No, they did not have access to your phone records. You are wrong about that being the only way. The collector can easily get the phone numbers for neighbors and relatives. You would be amazed at how much personal information is readily availabe online. Just takes a little knowledge and skill to track it down. By the way, calling your sister is a hard core collector technique. Be prepared for some nasty collection calls.
Jerahmiel Originally Answered: Can a creditor (legally) access my phone records?
The information is not received via phone records. There are many legal online websites creditors use to find information, including relatives and coworkers. You also signed a contract with them, thus allowing them to do this. Completely legal. I beg to differ about the "hard core techniques". if the collector is doing their job legally, they would have tried to call you first. If YOU didnt return the calls then they have ever right to try to collect their money differently. if they call your sister once a month (or about) that is legal...anything over that would be harrassment. I just noticed as well you mentioned creditorS...this is plural, meaning you have more then one collection debt. If you have five different creditors and they know your sister's number, she can legally get a phone call from every single one of these collectors, even on the same day. My suggestion, call your creditors and work out arrangments. Hiding won't stop them and if you have a bank account and they get judgment, it is very easy to attach to that
