Missouri Pre-1881 public marriage records in Missouri consist of marriage contracts and Marriage Register entries recorded with County Recorders of Deeds. 1881-Present public marriage records consist of Marriage Applications and Licenses issued by County Recorders. Missouri Marriage Applications rarely contain a parent or guardian name, only when the applicant was a minor and required parental consent. In Missouri, a Marriage License issued by any County Recorder may be used for a ceremony anywhere in Missouri but the License is returned after the ceremony to the County Recorder who issued it.

  1948-Present Missouri Marriage Verification may be obtained from the Missouri Department of Health's Vital Records Bureau - You will receive a computer-generated document verifying a marriage in Missouri, or no record found, not a marriage license and/or application copy. This service requires a notarized signature on Application. Marriage license and application copies issued by County Recorders are public records and do not require customer's notarized signature or photo identification to examine the record or purchase copies.
