How To Access Marriage Records

Marriage Records in Carlisle County, Kentucky is maintained by the county clerk. These records are basically in the public domain and can be accessed through a Freedom of Information Act request. However, certain requirements must be met before one can get access to such records.

This is the general procedure to get marriage records. You would need to fill up an application form which will be submitted to the county clerk’s office. You will be required to state the purpose of your request. It is also required that you attach with your request, the photocopy of a page from your marriage certificate or divorce decree. The documents mentioned here will serve as proof for the accuracy of your records request.

The next step in the request is to inquire about your record’s availability. This is done through mail. There will be a reply via mail or by phone call. If you choose the mail option, it may take up to a month for your information to reach you. The reason for this delay is because the clerk has to check if the information you provided is true and up to date.

Once the records department confirms with you, they usually give you a temporary notice to allow some time for your information to be updated. This temporary measure is to prevent your information to be used for something illegal. You are also expected to show proof of your identity during this period. This proves that they have verified who you are, and also the information regarding your records is true.

After the processing of your request, you will be given a certificate which will include all the necessary information regarding your records. However, it is still best to get a copy of your records as it is cheaper than paying for a lawyer to do it for you. If you are going to marry in another state, the county where you got married is responsible for giving you copies of your marriage records. You will be required to pay for this, but it is still worth the money as you will not have problems regarding the legal aspect.

As long as you are sure about marrying the person whom you intend to marry, then there are no laws preventing you from getting your marriage records. You are also not obliged to get a copy of the record, unless you are getting married in Clark County. In such case, you should get a copy from the state registry.
