Ordering Marriage Certificates
This office records the marriage certificate which is proof that a marriage ceremony was performed in Clark County. The marriage official who performs the ceremony has ten days to submit the marriage certificate to this office for recording. Normally a certified copy of the certificate would be available one day after the certificate has been received from the official.
All copies are folded and sent standard mail by the U.S. Post Office. Please allow up to 3 weeks to receive your order. International orders may take up to 6 weeks.
CERTIFIED COPY - A certified copy of a marriage certificate is a copy of the original certificate that was issued by the Clerk, signed by the Officiant and recorded in our office. The copy is created from an image that we have in digital format or on microfilm. The copy is printed on paper stock that incorporates security features. All marriage certificate copies are certified on the front with a raised seal. This certificate may be needed for most government agencies, Catholic Church, prison visitations, adoptions, and some foreign countries. Marriage Certificates are available for ALL marriages performed from 1909 to present.
CERTIFIED ABSTRACT OF MARRIAGE: A Marriage Abstract is a certified document that may be used for some U.S. agencies and some foreign countries.
APOSTILLES: Apostilles are obtained from the Nevada Secretary of State's Office. Information regarding apostilles can be found here.
