Marriage and Divorce Records Information

Depending on the jurisdiction, official marriage records will be called a marriage certificate or a marriage license. In some jurisdictions a marriage certificate is the official record that two people have undertaken a marriage ceremony. In other jurisdictions, a marriage license serves a dual purpose of granting permission for a marriage to take place and then recording the fact that it has done so. In the US, the certificate of marriage is recorded on the same document as the marriage license and the application for marriage. This allows all information relating to the marriage to be recorded on one document.

The two types of divorce records are a divorce decree and a divorce certificate. The divorce decree is a document that is prepared by the court, setting forth the terms and conditions of the divorce. It is signed by the judge and filed with the county clerk of the county where the decree was issued. A divorce certificate contains basic information about the husband and wife and the date and place the marriage ended. Certified copies of a divorce certificate are official copies issued by a court on the state or county level.

If you are seeking to find marriage records or divorce records it will be helpful to know the state and/or county that the marriage or divorce took place. Marriage and divorce records databases are typically available to access online for a small fee. These databases provide people with the means to attain marriage and/or divorce records much easier than they otherwise would be able to do.
