Marriage Records Search
Couples that file for a marriage license and then finish the act of being married will have a marriage certificate filed within the jurisdiction of the correct government office. Once this happens people will have the option to do a Marriage Records Search. Within the United States a marriage certificate is the official record that shows two people having completed a marriage ceremony. Doing a marriage records search may produce this data on a person along with other public information. There are times that a marriage certificate would need to be shown, like for a divorce proceeding or issues pertaining to legitimacy of a child.

What are marriage records used for?
The obvious is to prove that you are legally married. The other most commonly time a marriage record is used is when showing proof of your new name if changed. If you change your name after marriage you will have to apply for a new social security card. You will need to provide your marriage certificate in order to get the process complete.
The DMV office will require your marriage certificate in the event you change your name and need to update your driver license, title, registration, or identification card.

Why Do A Marriage Records Search?
Typically a marriage record search is done to see if an individual is or was married at one point in time. This data will not tell you if the individual is divorced as a separate search must be done to conclude that info. Gathering information from a marriage record can help you find the brides maiden name, parents names, where and when the marriage took place, and the groom’s name. This information can open up other areas of data when searching.
