Records Checklist for Capital Case Life History Investigation


This is only a preliminary list of essential records to obtain. Each record and document will have information that will lead to additional records and documents that you will need to obtain.

Have your client and his family members sign both the general release form and the HIPPA release form, at your first interview with them. You will need their dates of birth, social security numbers, and all names previously used. Also obtain signed release forms from your client’s parents, siblings, and extended family members, as needed.
