Caldwell County Marriage Records

Marriage is something that changes the status of a person, and status is something that follows the person no matter where he or she may go in his or her life. This is the reason why a married person cannot escape the fact that he or she is married by simply running to a different jurisdiction. Caldwell County Marriage Records, like all marriage records, are the best form of evidence that one could use in order to prove the existence of a marriage. It must be remembered that while marriage may be contracted by a person as many times as he or she wants, a person can only be married to one person at any given time.

Marriage Records Caldwell County are public records, and they are available to the public at all times. They are also, because of the presumption of regularity, presumed to be accurate at all times. This means that a person who would claim that the records are false would have the burden of proving his allegation, and such burden is not always so easy to overcome given several presumptions of law that work in favor of the official record.

Under the law, a person could only obtain copies of Caldwell County Marriage License Records from the office of the county clerk where the marriage was solemnized or celebrated. This may not always be the county or state where the couple is currently living. Thus, there is the need to know where the couple was actually married, or where the alleged marriage was solemnized. Once the location is certain, the first step would be to send a letter of request to the county clerk. The letter has no template that must be followed, but in general, the letter should contain as much information as possible regarding the records being requested for, so as to expedite the search. The actual processing time for the request would depend on a number of circumstances most of which are independent of the person making the request. Do note that the copies would not be issued until the required copying fee is actually paid.

TX Marriage Records are not available at the state level, but one could obtain a verification letter from the same source through the Vital Statistics Unit of the Texas Department of State Health Services. Although not the copy of the actual marriage record, some jurisdictions would accept a certification of no-record from the Vital Statistics Unit as an indication that there was no marriage at all, just as they would take a verification letter issued from the unit as conclusive proof that there is a marriage and the same is registered.

Another source of marriage records would be online databases. Using a platform that is faster and more efficient, these online databases could provide substantially the same information as the various government offices, but they charge only the most minimum of fees and they are easily accessible because they are internet based, which means that they could be accessed from just about anywhere where there is a substantial internet connection.
