How to Search For Marriage Records in Pickens County South Carolina

The first step to conducting a public records search for marriage records in Pickens County is to request the records from the Office of the Clerk Recorder of Records. This office is located at the county courthouse in Greenville. It can also be contacted through their website or by mail if the person you are checking on does not have Internet access.

Marriage Records in Pickens County South Carolina

After you have requested these records, they will normally be sent to your address by Federal Post. You will have to pay for the records and will have to fill out an application. This application can be picked up from the courthouse where you applied to receive the records. The cost is usually a nominal $5.00 fee and includes several copies of the marriage records.

Once you receive your copy of the records, you will need to do some additional research to verify the information contained in them. In particular, the names of the two individuals are important pieces of information to verify. If there was some sort of a divorce settlement in the history of the marriage, the court papers should list it. The same applies if there was some type of annulment. If this information is missing, there may be some possibility that the public records are incorrect.

Check with the local newspapers in the area to see if there are any reports regarding the divorce settlements or annulments in the past. It is also wise to speak to family members to see if they recall this information. Also, you may want to contact the local law enforcement agencies with any of these questions to see if they have any information. While you may not have to conduct a full-blown investigation, it never hurts to be thorough.

Once you have confirmed all of the information you have researched on the marriage records in Pickens County, you can begin processing the records. While you are at it, you should also contact the county’s Vital Statistics Office with any other questions that you have. You may also want to contact the individual state or county office to see if they have any information that would be useful. Some states and counties allow for a simple fax option for in-person verification. Others still have in-house computer databases where the information can be accessed via fax or email.

Finally, once you have found what you are looking for, it is time to proceed with the actual record search. Typically, you will be required to pay a nominal fee for the records. This is generally minimal and will reimburse you for the amount of time it takes you to sift through the public records to find the information that you are seeking. Typically, the fee is small enough to fit in your search needs. There is no reason to pay for the results if you don’t want to. However, if you are required to pay a fee, it is well worth the expense since the process is fast and easy.
