Just wanted to commend Flora and the rest of the staff for such excellent customer service. I lost my marriage certificate and needed another one fast! My vacation to Jamaica was within 7 days and I wouldn’t have been able to leave the country without it. I was frantic and Flora kept me calm. Thanks Flora for babysitting me during that stressful time!

When Requesting Certified Copies of Marriage Certificates…

Provide as much information as you can. If you are unsure of the exact date of the wedding we can search up to a 10 year range. Be sure to specify the range of years that you want.

It is not uncommon for someone to forget the city or county which their wedding ceremony took place. In this instance we need as much information as possible to retrieve the correct public records.

Searches performed with insufficient or inaccurate information provided by the requesting party will not be refunded. Failure to adequately provide necessary information for a search could prevent our searchers from retrieving the correct public records.

Because we charge on a “Per Search” basis, NO refunds will be issued for searches resulting in “NO RECORD FOUND”. If additional attempts to locate Public Records are requested, each attempt will require a separate order and the appropriate fees applied.

If you are unsure about some of the information included in your order, the City or County the Marriage License was issued in, can sometimes be helpful.
