Public Marriage Records in Ohio

Couples must apply for a marriage license from the Ohio state authorities in order to get married. The marriage license includes information about the couple, such as names, dates of birth, disclosures of prior marriages, and the wedding location. In addition to marriage licenses, public marriage records include marriage certificates, which certify a legal marriage recorded by OH state.

Ohio Marriage Certificates

After a wedding, couples submit the marriage license form to the OH Office that issues marriage certificates. A marriage certificate acts as legal proof of the marriage. Several offices issue marriage certificates, including the Ohio Marriage License Office and the Office of the County Clerk. A certified marriage certificate proves the marriage is valid, and it may be required to apply for insurance on a spouse's plan, change legal names, or receive other spousal benefits.

Marriage Records for Name Changes in OH

Legal name changes after a marriage require a certified marriage certificate. Individuals can apply for a certified marriage certificate from the County of City Clerk Office or the Ohio Marriage License Office. After receiving a certified marriage certificate, individuals need to apply for an updated Social Security card with the Social Security Office, change names on their driver's license with the OH Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and change names on any bank accounts, credit cards, and other accounts. Changing legal names on a passport also requires a certified marriage certificate.
