Marion County, Alabama – Marriage and Divorce Records

Unlike many other types of official and state-handled records, marriage and divorce records are easy to access. Although the specific reasons why these records are easy to get and free to access by anyone are both many and debatable, the fact remains that if you want to know if someone is married or if someone is divorced, you most definitely can.
The Alabama Department of Public Health, in addition to dealing with public health concerns across the state of Alabama, maintains and handles the full database of all vital records. Vital records include marital certificates, divorces records, birth certificates and death records. However, birth certificates and death certificates have heavy restrictions placed on them that govern who is allowed to access them, and why. This is because a wide variety of financial documents and other identity-theft vulnerable pieces of information require a birth certificate to ask.
