Medina County Marriage Records

The reason that the state often has to consent before a marriage could be celebrated lies in the fact that marriage is something that the whole community is interested in. Although it is true that marriage is something that involves only two people, the result of the marriage is something that the whole community is interested in because there are rights and obligations that are only available to married couples, and these are rights and obligations that the whole world, and not just the community where the married couple belong, have to respect. The best way to prove the existence of marriage would be through the use of official records such as Medina County Marriage Records.

Like all marriage records, a valid marriage license forms the core of Marriage Records Medina County, but since the valid marriage license would only prove the consent of the state and not the fact of the marriage itself, there are other documents pertinent to the marriage that are included in the collection of records.

Under Texas law, a person who desires to get a copy of Medina County Marriage License Records would first have to go to the county where the marriage occurred. Thus, marriages celebrated outside of Medina County would have no records within the county, so it is suggested that a verification of the marriage be first obtained. This verification is obtained at the state level from the Department of State Health Services through the Vital Statistics Unit. The verification is obtained by submitting a request for the same through an application form that may be downloaded from the website of the department, and through the payment of the required verification fee which is twenty dollars. Note that, under the law, registration at the state level is required before the marriage is considered to be valid, thus, if there is no registration at the Department, then there is no marriage at all, and often, this is enough proof.

Of course, if there are records, then the verification would reflect the same and the marriage must be celebrated at Medina County. Once the Texas Marriage License Public Record is confirmed to be at Medina County, the next step would be to request for the same through a request letter addressed to the county clerk. The letter is non-standard in format, and must contain as much information regarding the records in question as possible. The county clerk would process the same as soon as he or she had received the letter of request.
