How To Find Kentucky’s Marriage Records
The state of Kentucky is known for many things, among them its marriage records. Anyone who needs to find out the information contained in a marriage record in Kentucky has to take on the task of going through the individual’s birth date, legal marriage date and location of marriage. After this information, the person will be asked to pay some fees because marriage records in Kentucky are completely free for viewing and accessing. However, since this information is considered public record, one can request it from the county where the marriage happened, or he can even go online and visit the county offices.
The cost however varies from county to county. For instance, in Russellville, one will have to shell out around fifty dollars for processing. On the other hand, in Richmond, the processing fee is just under forty dollars. Also, when it comes to printing and delivery, one will be charged extra fees. These are the general rates however; each county or state might have their own individual rates for processing and delivering the information.
Given that this is considered to be public record, anyone can now search for these records online. This means that in case you are conducting your own investigation, you do not have to visit the office personally. You will simply have to log-in to the state’s records website, pay the corresponding fees and then gain access to the state’s vital records database.
In case one wants to gather information regarding marriages that took place in Kentucky, they should first check the National Marriage File. This is the central records repository for all types of marriage records in the state. It has all the records from marriage registrations that were done in the last seven years. Additionally, it holds information for previous and current marriages. Therefore, one has the complete set of records to sift through whenever he or she needs Kentucky’s marriage records.
Because the National Marriage File does not have information on the dissolution of marriages, one must go to the county office where the wedding was solemnized in order to obtain the necessary records. However, be prepared for a hefty fee since these records are considered to be public records. Therefore, you have to expect to pay quite a lot if you want to retrieve information such as the couple’s names and the date of the wedding.
The above two options are the most common ways by which people look for Kentucky’s marriage records. However, there are other options available as well. For instance, you can visit the local court house of the county where the marriage was held. These courthouses usually maintain the records of all civil weddings that occurred in their jurisdiction. However, you may have to take the time to visit the county office in this case since the courthouses usually have no other records pertaining to certain years unless the divorce was done few decades ago.
