Ways by Which You Can Access Marriage License Records Online

Marriage Records in Cuyahoga County, Ohio is maintained in the vital records office of the County of Cuyahoga. These records contain data such as the names and birth dates of the bride and groom, their parents’ names, and their parents’ addresses. Some of these records also include the minor children of the couple, their parents’ names and addresses, the names of witnesses at the ceremony, the official reason for the marriage, and more.

In general, marriage records can be obtained from the county recorder’s office or from some of the various web sites that maintain these records. You may also check them from the Central Register of Deeds and Records as well. Marriage records are maintained online so if you have access to the Internet, you may find it very convenient to do your search from there. However, the information is retained locally so if you have to travel a long distance, you will still have to pay the necessary fees. Therefore, it would still be best to conduct the search yourself.

There are several ways by which you can access marriage license records online. First, you may try to locate the County Clerk of Probate in the county where the marriage was solemnized. He or she would usually be available through a phone call or email. Second, you may visit the court house where the marriage was issued. The clerk usually maintains the files of marriage licenses online. Third, you may access these files directly from the county’s website.

There are a number of things that you will need before conducting your search online. If you do not have your records in yet, you may first go to the county courthouse and request for them. The person who conducted the marriage must then produce the records within a few hours. This process may take some time, so it would still be better if you have all the documents that you need right at the onset.

The reason why you will need such vital information is because marriage records contain information such as the names of the bride and groom, the parents of both parties, witnesses, wedding day, venue, and many more. Furthermore, the records may also show the civil status of the couple such as which side they belong to. This may also reveal if the couple has ever been legally separated or married. There are some states that require the submission of this information once in awhile. Other than these, the records may also reveal if the couple has ever undergone any legal proceedings such as divorce or annulment. Moreover, the records will also reveal if the couple has owned property jointly or not.

Marriage license records are basically confidential but you can make requests for their public release through the courts. Once this request is done, the court will make a decision on your request within 45 days. The decision is based on the information that you supplied and the amount of information that you needed.
