Marriage and Divorce Records

A pair of wedding bands lie on an open book

Vital Statistics issues letters verifying if a marriage or divorce was recorded with the State of Texas based on the application for marriage or divorce sent to our office by local clerks. Verification letters are not considered legal substitutes for marriage licenses or divorce decrees. Vital Statistics strongly recommends that applicants ensure a verification will satisfy its intended use.
Marriage/Divorce Record FAQs

Certified copies of marriage licenses are only available from the county clerk. Certified copies of divorce decrees are only available from the district clerk. Certified copies of marriage/divorce records must be obtained in the county or district in which they were originally filed.
