Where Can I Find Marriage Records in Virginia?

One of the questions I get asked a lot from couples going through their wedding planning processes is how to find out the marriage records in Scott County Virginia. The fact of the matter is that the marriage records have been kept in this area for a very long time. They were initially recorded in the 1700’s as a means of tracking down couples who had gotten married. They were not used for anything more than a confirmation of identity. As time went on, they were used as a way to find out the marital status of someone. There are now several different reasons why one would want to know the marital status of someone.

One reason people want to check up on the marriage records in Scott County is to see if someone has ever been divorced. If a divorced person has moved into that area, it may be to continue their life in that area. If they still live there, they do not want their former partner to know that they have moved to another location. They may not want to risk their children growing up with a married man. Checking up on someone will give you the opportunity to ensure that they are not living a double life.

Another reason that people want to look up the records of a person, is to verify the information they have given them about themselves on their application. Some people will intentionally lie on their applications. They may say they have been divorced or married. They may not have. Checking up on the married person will let you know that they still are married and that they are telling the truth on the application.

It is not hard to get hold of the marriage records in Scott County. You can contact the local government offices to find out the information you need. They will either be able to tell you where you can go to get the information, or they will be able to direct you to the site where you can get it from. The information you get from the sites can only be used for records, not to look them up yourself.

You can also search through the local newspaper. Many times there are many stories in the paper about other places that you can search. You may even find that there are online sites that will give you the information. It will be worth the small investment to check that out, as it could be vital to you finding out more about a person.

There are many reasons why you might want to check marriage records in Virginia. You just have to know where to look. You do not have to go to the courthouse to check up on someone. You can look up records anywhere you have a computer. You will be able to obtain the information that you need quickly and easily.
