Marriage Records in Dade County Georgia – Search Online For Marriage Records

Georgia marriage records are held by the Georgia Department of Public Health under the orders of the Georgia Supreme Court. These records are supposed to be public and free for anyone who wants to find them, but this law is usually ignored. Many times people will ask about marriage records in Georgia just to find out if they have it, or simply to verify that their family members all had proper marriages in the past. Whatever your reason, the following information should help you find out where to search for Georgia marriage records.

Marriage records in Dade County are available for public access through the Georgia Vital Records Registry, although some counties will charge a small fee. If you are trying to locate marriage records of a person in another county, you may not have much luck. If you can not find the information that you need through any traditional methods like the above links, then you should use one of the many online databases available. Marriage records are basically divided into two sections, county-wide and circuit-wide.

You can search the public records of a county-wide. The records of everyone living in Dade County are available for public access, but the records of those getting married in the county are held in different places. Some of the information can be obtained free from the county, while others have to be paid for via a process called “records certification”. This certification can be done online, at a fee, or through a specially designed application.

Circuit-wide marriage records are not publicly accessible, but these records are considered more accurate since they are more in-depth. Each circuit-wide record has a title page with the names of the couple, the county the marriage took place, and the location (city or county). There will also be an area code listed, and sometimes a map will be included. To see all of the records that are available for a particular circuit, you need to download the “tocard” that is available at the courthouse.

In some states like Texas and Nevada, there are separate records for marriages. Marriage license records can only be searched for in that state. These records are sealed and cannot be obtained without a fee. Searching for them online is highly recommended, as you will have access to all of the information that you want. Marriage records in Dade County can be searched by anyone.

The cost varies between $15 and $30 depending on what you want to search, how many records you need, or where you are doing your search. There is no obligation to use the service if you do not want to, and you can even pay someone to do it for you. Many companies that offer online certified records charge a minimal fee. Some of these companies will also allow you to print out a paper copy of the certified record to take with you to look up at any time.
