Skills Center: Marriage Certificate, copy of

Instructions for obtaining a copy of a marriage certificate be found at Marriage Certificates and Divorce Decrees, from the Minnesota Department of Health. Also useful is the MOMS website which was created to assist customers in finding a marriage certificate on file within the State of Minnesota. The index identifies which county is the official custodian of the record. Questions and concerns about specific records should be directed to the custodial county.

DISCLAIMER:  As librarians and not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file), or legal opinions, (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts.)  To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law.  Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, further research is usually required to find a complete and correct answer.  For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.  For links to resources on finding an attorney, see http://www.lawlibrary.state.mn.us/selfhelp.html#atty.
