Public Collier County Marriage Records

To understand the reason why marriage records like Collier County Marriage Records are some of the most requested for records from the government, one must first understand the reason why these records are made. These records are the official records of the government in regards to the fact of the marriage of the couple named in the record, and because that is the case, these records are the best evidence that one could present in order to prove the fact of the marriage, something that is often necessary given that marriage is something that would change the status of the persons who had gotten married and such change of status follows the person no matter where the person may go in his or her life.


The status of being married is something that would follow the person no matter where the person may go, and for this reason, the rights and privileges as well as the duties, obligations, and limitations that are attached upon the person by the reason of the marriage would also follow the person no matter where the person in question may go. Thus, a married person does not escape the fact that he or she is married by fleeing to a different jurisdiction, and because he or she cannot escape the fact that he or she is married, he or she could also not escape the limitation of the marriage that he or she is under.

This is the reason why the records are often requested, so that they could be used to prove the fact of the marriage, and by so doing, prove that the person named in the record has limited rights in relation to the right to get married. A married person can only get married to his or her spouse and no one else, while the marriage is still in existence. Thus, by presenting the record, a person could prevent the still married person from getting married to a person who is not his or her spouse. Note, however, that the persons who could make the request for the complete records are limited by the law to only those who are named in the record and who are related to them, though it is possible to make the request for copies of certification of existence of the record in question.

A request for copies of t he records in question could be done from a number of locations, but perhaps the best place to make the request would be at the local level offices as there would be fewer records there that would have to be checked. Of course, a request here would have limitations that would image have to be taken into consideration as well, and the procedure for making the request would either be through the mail or in person depending on the office where the request would be made.

Copies of Collier County Marriage License Records may also be obtained online through the use of online databases, though note that these databases are not official sources. Still, they could present information that would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the official sources, and they could present the information faster and more efficiently.
