Where to Look For Marriage Records in Washoe County

There is no longer any legal or other necessity to get marriage records in Washoe County, Nevada. These were traditionally kept in the county offices with the help of the clerk. It was necessary for a certified copy of the application to be faxed to the county office before the wedding could take place.

In cases where the marriage has been declared void or voidable, it would still be noted in the vital statistics office of the county. However, you will not be allowed to obtain a copy of this record without the fee being paid. This is because such records are considered to be state documents and the right to access them belongs to the state itself. Only the person requesting the copy of the record may have it viewed. This means that you cannot simply go into the county recorder’s office and demand the record. Such action is deemed illegal by the laws of Washoe County.

Now that there is no longer any legal requirement to get marriage licenses before marriage, getting information regarding marriage is very simple. There are many online websites that offer free information on marriage records. However, not all information on marriage is really free because sometimes the websites need to pay for certain information to be placed on their website. Sometimes this information is confidential and only available to licensed agencies. It is therefore important to make sure you are accessing the correct website.

Marriage records in Washoe County are available from the county offices as well as several websites. The website of the county can be contacted for information either by telephone or by mail. You should make sure you are getting a correct record by checking the date of birth of the person being married and the age of the person too. If you have any reason to doubt the information provided on the website, do not proceed further and call the county office for verification.

When you are searching for information on someone else’s record, you should be careful about some details. There are different laws that apply in different states and countries. It would be best if you could contact the attorney general of the state where the person you want to search has lived for the past five years. An attorney general’s office can give you information on marriages and divorces that took place in that particular state. However, it is unlikely that they would release this information without a fee. Therefore, unless you are willing to pay for the information you want, it might be best to contact an attorney general’s office for general information.

Some other useful resources can be found at the Family Law Library in Reno. Here you will find a wide range of information on marriage records. These resources can help you gather all the information you need. They will also guide you to the correct resource, so that you obtain the records in the most appropriate way. Some libraries also provide services that enable you to access a person’s immigration record, if it has been placed there by the authorities.
