To arrange an exhumation you must apply for a licence from the Attorney-General.
The licence application form includes details of criteria, information and documentation required by the Attorney-General.
There's no specific timeframe on the process, as each application has different circumstances.
Please post your application to:
Office of the Chief Executive
GPO Box 464
ADELAIDE SA 5001
