Marriage Records in Perry County Mississippi

State law mandates that any person who wishes to obtain these records must first fill out an application stating the reasons for the search and information that you want to obtain. This application can be done at the county clerk office, or online through one of the accredited providers. After completing and submitting the application, an investigator will review your request and determine if there is a need to proceed with your search. Once your application has been approved, a search fee will be sent to you via mail. If your request was made through the internet, you may also receive a confirmation e-mail.

When the records are received, they are then evaluated to determine if they contain the information that you are searching for. If the records do not contain the information that you require, they will be deleted from your file. However, the records remain on file until they are manually retrieval. Depending on the county that you are requesting the records in, this could take several weeks.

Once your file is available, it is important to be sure that you are legally entitled to access to all of the information contained within it. Mississippi public records are not considered private information; thus, anyone can access them. However, some portions of the records will be limited in terms of who is allowed to view them and what they can see. In Perry County, some of the information contained in your file may be restricted based on age, if you are a minor, if you are divorced or not, or if you are a same-sex household member.

Typically, you will have to provide your full name and date of birth, Social Security number, any names of individuals who are witnesses to your marriage, names of those who filed the papers, and where you live. You can also have the state where the ceremony took place, whether it was before or after you were married, your former names and birth dates, and the filing numbers of the official certificates (if applicable). Marriage records are maintained by various county departments, and you may need to fill out an application to access the information. You should be prepared to provide your social security number when requesting information online. Marriage records are available to the public.

There are some fees associated with the retrieval of your file. Typically, if you are looking for a full record, you will be charged a fee that is less than what you would pay to a traditional record store. If you are just looking for information such as names of the people who conducted the ceremony, or if you are looking for supplemental information, you may be able to obtain that for a fee. Regardless of which agency you choose, finding these records online has never been easier.
