Oklahoma Marriage Records Oklahoma Marriage Records Presentation Transcript

  • Oklahoma Marriage Records
  • The State of Oklahoma Marriage Records are maintained at the County Clerk of Court where the marriage occurred. Oklahoma does not follow what other states do with their public records wherein they have a central repository for them. Fortunately, marriage records are deemed as part of the public domain and any member of the public can place a request for them. Marriage records are the only legal documents accepted by any government body to prove the validity of a marriage. If a marriage record is not yet finalized, a marriage is still considered incomplete.
  • Before a marriage ceremony can be carried out, a couple must secure a marriage license from the court. The couple must appear at the court at the same time at the time of the application. The legal age for marriage is 18 years old and if one of the couple has not reached that age yet, the parents must show up too and sign a consent form. If you have been married in the past, you need to present your finalized divorce record. And if in some states licenses are good for 90 days, in Oklahoma they are only good for 10 days and can only be used within the state. Normally, copies of marriage licenses are given only to the couple and their legal representatives.
  • To start a search, you need to provide a full name of either of the couple and also the exact date or just the year of the marriage. If you do not know the exact date or year, you can include a range of years to be searched so the entire process will not take that long. Providing as much information as you can will speed up the searching process and also increase the chances of locating the right record.
  • There are corresponding fees for obtaining the files. They are to be paid through money order or issuing a certified check. Once payments are made, no refunds will be issued, regardless of whether the files are located or not. It is also important to show a proof of your identity, and it can be done by presenting a government- issued ID.
  • Other sources for retrieving marriage records are online search tools. You can find some that specialized in providing the records to the public, upon request. There is no need to worry about any encounters with the law because these search tools have the authorization from the court to do what they do. There two types of search tools available: free and fee-based. You will be provided with the basic pieces of information of a marriage record, regardless of what type of search tool you use. Names of the husband and the wife, their place of residence, and the date and place of their marriage are just some of the information that you can retrieve. As a precautionary measure, it is advisable
  • that you check the background of the search tool you are considering of using. Find out if they are a reliable source or not. Check out user reviews and see if other users are satisfied with what they were provided with.
  • You can also perform a Free Marriage License Search online. If you do not know which county or which state to start your search, you can look for service providers that allow you to perform a nationwide search. A service provider usually has a search box. Enter what information you know about the license. In just a few seconds, search results will be displayed on your computer screen.
