Tuolumne County Marriage Records

It is said that a marriage affects not only the people who are parties to the marriage, but even those who are not. This is because there are rights and obligations that come only after a valid marriage and these are rights and obligations that everyone in the world, whether or not they are parties to the marriage, indeed, whether or not they are even aware of the marriage, owes to the validly married couple. Later, when the married couple finally has children, those children would also have rights and obligations that they would have only if they are born out of a valid marriage, in other words, if they are legitimate. Thus, it is easy to see why marriage records like Tuolumne County Marriage Records, are very important and why they are kept by the government.

Marriage Records Tuolumne County could be used for official proceedings, but note that only certified copies of marriage records would be accepted, because only certified copies are afforded that presumption of authenticity that are usually afforded to all public records. Certified copies may only be obtained by a person who is included in an exclusive list that is provided or by law, but for those who are not in this list, there are informational copies and these copies are available to everyone. In terms of contents, the two copies provide the same information, it is just that informational copies could not be used for official proceedings.

There are various sources of Tuolumne County Marriage License Records, but the first office that a person should request the records from would be the office of the recorder. A request at this office would either be made in person or through mail, and both have their own advantages and disadvantages. Certainly, a request in person would mean that the person making the request would first have to go to the office and make the request there, but note that requests in person are faster because the records would be made available at the same day. Request for records through mail would be slower as the office would first have to receive the application form and send back the records, and this could take days, but at least, there is no need for the person making the request to actually go to the office and make the request there. Either way, the required fee is fifteen dollars, and there are formal requisites that must be complied with when making a request for a certified copy. These formal requisites are the notarized application form and the required sworn statement where the searcher would detail his or her relationship with the parties to the marriage.

Another source of Marriage Records State of California would be the California Department of Public Health, a state level department. The procedure to make a request here, as well as the required fee and the formal requisites, are the same as at the local level requesting through mail. There is currently no provision for requesting for records at the department in person.

Perhaps the best source of records, however, would be online databases. Faster, more efficient, and universally available to everyone who has an internet connection, these databases provide the same information as the various government offices and agencies, but the platform that they are using means that the information is readily available. As an added bonus, most of these databases actually do not charge anything for the use of their services.
