Verification of marriage, civil union, dissolution (divorce)

We provide official verification of marriage, civil unions or dissolution (divorce) recorded with the Office of the State Registrar of Vital Statistics. 
  • A verification of marriage, civil union or dissolution (divorce) isn't the same as a certified copy of the certificate or court document.

  • For marriages and civil unions you should contact the county clerk that issued the license; for divorce decrees you should contact the county court where the dissolution took place.
