How to Search Marriage Records in Kentucky

Looking for Kentucky Marriage Records? There are actually two ways to go about this: first, you can hire a private investigator to do the job for you or second, you can do your own search. Doing your own investigation could be one of the most expensive and time-consuming ways of searching for the marriage record of the person you want to search. Private investigators could charge up to $100 per hour for the service they will provide to you. If you are not going to use that service, then doing your own research could save you money, time and a lot of stress.

A lot of states and counties keep vital records such as marriage records in their respective databases. This information may be publicly available through the various county offices or the courts. However, not every record is available for public viewing. Some of these records are kept confidential for one reason or another. You can find some counties or states that require an individual to apply for a court order before they can access certain records such as the marriage records of a person.

However, not all states or counties make information like the marriage records readily available to the public. Some simply don’t have the resources to store such records or they have specific requirements needed before they will make such information publicly available. If you plan to conduct your own investigation into the marriage records in Kentucky, it is important that you know which information is considered public and which is not. In some cases, for example when a couple has been married for over 30 years, there may be some information that is not viewable by the public. If you need this information, you may need to file a request with the court clerk who handled the case. This could take some time and quite a lot of effort.

In the state of Kentucky, information on marriages is considered public record unless it specifically states otherwise. To find out if the information you are looking for is viewable by the public, you can simply do an online search to retrieve the information you are seeking. There are many government records database sites online that allow you to search for Kentucky marriage records. By conducting a simple search, you will get some general information about the information. Then you need to determine if the information is viewable and if you want to pay a fee to get it.

The State of Kentucky has compiled all of the records into one database that they call “The Kentucky Vital Records Registry”. All of the information on marriages that are public record are kept in this central collection. If you have marriage records in Kentucky, then the chances are good that they are in the vital records database.

Marriage records can also be found in other states, although not all of them have access to the same information. Typically, these states require the person requesting the record to fill out and submit a request for information about the record. In most cases, this request is filed with the county in which the event happened and the request is usually handled by the county clerk’s office. Marriage records in other states are generally handled by the state government.
