Brazos County Marriage Records

Marriage records like Brazos County Marriage Records are the best evidence that one could present in order to prove the existence of the marriage. It is so conclusive that there are some jurisdictions that would not even look into the contents of the license itself, and would just take its existence as prima facie evidence of the existence of the marriage, though it must be noted that the absence of a marriage record does not mean that the marriage does not exist, for it is possible that there is a mere oversight on the part of the recording body.

The reason why Marriage Records Brazos County are important lies in the importance of marriage and its effects. As one of the few ceremonies that could actually change the status of a person, marriage attaches upon a married person certain rights and obligations that are binding against the whole world, whether or not the whole world was aware of the fact of the marriage. This is primarily the reason why a married person could not get married again without first making sure that his or her previous marriage had been properly dissolved.

Copies of Brazos County Marriage License Records are available only at the local level, which would be the office of the county clerk of the county where said license was issued. Often, it is not possible to know where the record was issued, so it is suggested that any person who wants to search for the records should first verify the existence of the records through the office of vital records of the Texas Department of State Health Services. This process is done by sending an accomplished request form to the office, accompanied by a money order or check for the required fee of twenty dollars, for processing. The office, once it had received the request would check their records for any license matching the one described in the form and verification would be sent should there be a record. That verification letter would contain the information where the record was issued. If there are no records at the state level, then a certification reflecting the same would be issued. Note that if the marriage is not recorded at the state level, then it is possible that the marriage is not yet effective because the law requires the marriage to be recorded at the state level.

Once the verification letter had been issued, or the searcher is just aware where the record was issued, then the next step to acquire a copy of a Marriage Records Texas would be to write a request letter addressed to the county clerk, detailing in the same as much information as possible regarding the record in question.
