San Luis Obispo County Marriage Records

There are some rights that are only available after marriage, just as there are some obligations and responsibilities that are only available after marriage. These rights and obligations are not limited in the sense that only the parties to the marriage are bound by them. Rather, third persons, even those who had not yet been born, may be bound by such rights and obligations, because marriage is a status, and status is something that binds the whole world. When one takes this into consideration, it is easy to see why the government requires that marriages be registered, and when one takes into consideration the social importance of marriage, it is easy to see why marriage records, such as San Luis Obispo County Marriage Records are of such importance to the public at large.

As public records, Marriage Records San Luis Obispo County is supposed to be available to the world at large, but this is only true when it comes to informational copies.

Both informational and certified copies of San Luis Obispo County Marriage License Records may be obtained from the office of the clerk-recorder. To request for records here, the searcher may opt to use one of three procedures. The first would be to request for the records in person. By far, the simplest of the three, this procedure would, however, require the personal appearance of the searcher at the office and to make the request there. At this procedure, only a valid identification card is required, though, of course, there is the matter of payment and formal requisites. The second would be to request for the records through mail, and the third would be through electronic mail. The first step in both is to download the required application form and comply with the formal requisites necessary when requesting for certified copies. The formal requirements are that the form must be notarized and a sworn statement detailing the qualification of the searcher be appended to the request form. This is where the procedure diverges, because in the second method, a money order or a check must accompany the request form to answer for the required fee of fifteen dollars. In the third method, the searcher must complete and submit a credit card application form. Now, the next step would be for the searcher to send the forms to the office for processing, and when is requesting through mail, this would be through mail, while the third procedure would require that the forms be sent through electronic mail.
