Marriage Records in Fentress County Tennessee

When it comes to marriage records in other states, they do not maintain a database. The information contained within their records is most likely outdated. When you are searching from another state, you can obtain the name of the registrant as well as the date of birth of each person included on the record.

There are several reasons why someone may want to conduct their own public records search. You may have a need for the information to check on the records of someone you just started dating, or maybe you have started a new job and you need to verify the date of your initial employment. You may also be concerned about an ex-spouse or someone who has been threatening you with something and you would like to know who this person is and where they are now.

Whatever your reasons are, obtaining marriage records in Tennessee is much easier than conducting one from another state. This is because all that is required is a valid reason for your request. The state does not have to reveal the information regarding reasons for the request. Therefore, if you make a simple online search and you do not receive any results, you may want to call the office of Vital Records to see if there is a free service or if you will have to pay a fee. The Office of Vital Records generally has these types of records available for purchase or if you can obtain it for free through some kind of inter-state network.

Marriage records are kept by the county in which the marriage occurred. Because marriage occurs in several different counties in a state, the records are sometimes spread over more than one county. Therefore, if you want to verify that the person you are searching for is indeed married, you will have to visit the county where the actual ceremony took place. However, bear in mind that since marriage records are considered public record, anyone over the age of 18 can view them. Therefore, if you wish to view them you will have to provide identification, a valid social security number, and you may be asked to show proof of citizenship.

If all else fails and you still have unanswered questions as to the validity of the request, you may want to hire a professional investigator to assist you. Marriage records are confidential and only the authorized head of a household may view them. If you choose to go this route you will need to prepare a substantial amount of information including the last name of the groom and bride, their parents’ names, their marriage license number and the names of their witnesses. You may also be required to provide some additional information about yourself and your reason for retrieving the record.
