Marriage Certificate vs. Marriage License:

These are two separate documents:

A Marriage License is a legal document that authorizes a designated party to perform the ceremony, allowing you to get married.

Note: Marriage Licenses are issued prior to the ceremony and can only be issued by the state or the county where the ceremony will take place. We can not issue marriage licenses.

A Marriage Certificate is an official document that must be recorded with the County Recorders Office, and proves you were married. The Marriage Certificate shows where the ceremony took place, who performed the ceremony and the date of the ceremony.

There are two types of Certificate issued for Proof of Marriage in Clark County . Please use the following descriptions to help determine which type of Certificate you will need.

Abstract Certificate: Has bride and grooms names, date married, date of recording, and certificate number.

  • Used for: DMV, Social Security

Marriage Certificate: A copy of the actual certificate of the ceremony. Includes all of the information on the “Abstract Certificate” plus the following:

  • Signature of Witnesses
  • Ministers’ Name
  • Name and Physical address of the location the ceremony was performed in.
  • Used for: Adoption, Immigration

The unrecorded certificate you received at the time of your marriage is not considered “Proof of Marriage.” Only after the Marriage Certificate has been recorded and CERTIFIED, is it valid.

When Requesting a Certified Copy of a Marriage Certificate…

Provide as much information as you can. If you are unsure of the exact date of the marriage we can search up to a 10 year range. Be sure to specify the range of years that you want.

It is not uncommon for someone to forget the city or county which their wedding ceremony took place. In this instance we need as much information as possible to retrieve the correct documents.

Searches performed with insufficient or inaccurate information provided by the requesting party will not be refunded. Failure to adequately provide necessary information for a search could prevent our searchers from retrieving the correct document.

Because we charge on a “Per Search” basis, NO refunds will be issued for searches resulting in “NO RECORD FOUND”. If additional attempts to locate Certificates are requested, each attempt will require a separate order and the appropriate fees applied.

If you are unsure about some of the information included in your order, the City or County the Marriage License was issued in can sometimes be helpful.
