Marriage Records Can Provide Valuable Information About Someone’s Past

As a former Marriage Records in Nevada Clerk of Court, I was asked to review and explain the legal position of each record entry from a Marriage Record in Nevada. The state of Nevada is not bound by the common law rules on marriage records, so they retain their own position and definitions. For example, they hold the position that when there has been a marriage in a county, that the union is legally terminated upon the death of the individual who performed the wedding ceremony (even though no paper or official document is issued). Also they believe that the marriage license was not legally terminated until one year following the wedding, at which time an extract is given to the prospective spouse. If either party wishes to challenge these definitions, it is their responsibility to do so in the court system.

The first step that you will need to take if you wish to challenge these definitions is to file a suit against the county where the marriage license was issued. This is generally done with a request to a court of law. Once the suit is filed, you will need to appear before the judge assigned to your case and apply for a temporary restraining order (often called a TRO). This TRO will prevent any further attempts by the other party to enforce their legal rights against you. TROs are granted based on what the public records indicate, so you may be required to go to many different county courthouses before the TRO is issued.

If the TRO is granted, the other party is expected to post the proper forms and evidence that they were legally married, to which you will then have to obtain a copy of your marriage records in Nevada. You may have to bring this evidence with you to the county clerk where the wedding took place. Once the marriage records are in your possession, it is then your responsibility to maintain them. Every time you make a copy of the marriage certificate, it is required to enter the correct information into the registry with your name and date of birth. As proof of your identity, your name, and your date of birth, you will be required to show a valid photo identification. Marriage records can be lost or misplaced, so you should keep them secure in a safe place.

If there are any errors on the marriage records, there are some quick and easy ways to make sure the records are accurate. Most states require the wedding party to send the official paper to the micro-organisms in question in order for a copy of the record to be made. If the state registry does not contain the proper records, then you can request those from the county office of the county where the event took place. The cost varies by state, but if the number of guests is relatively small, you may not be able to afford the expense. If you can’t find an appropriate source to assist you, try asking friends or family members who may have already obtained copies of the records.

When you search for marriage records in California, the Department of Public Health will provide you with a copy of the current record for each marriage license that has been cancelled or void. If a license has been suspended, the department can provide you with a temporary copy at no charge. However, it will usually take up to sixty days to make the necessary searches to find the correct record. If you are not satisfied with the information you receive from the department, you can request a refund. You must provide a valid reason for the search.

Marriage records are considered public information and can be requested by anyone who has a legitimate reason to need to obtain such records. Marriage records are available online via a few sites on the Internet. Some of the sites charge a fee, while others provide records for free. To find out more about the various sites and what information they contain, contact the state office of public health or the Vital Records Registry.
