Arkansas Marriage Records Search
Arkansas marriage records are not open to the public for 50 years after the event at the state level and can only be accessed by the registrant, immediate family members, designated representatives or persons demonstrating a right to the record. Arkansas marriage records are also managed at the county level.
Full certified copies of marriage licenses are available for purchase directly from the County Clerk or Circuit Clerk office in the county where the marriage license was issued. The State Vital Records Office can only provide certified copies of the coupons of marriage in paper form since January 1917 to the present.
Certified copies of Arkansas marriage coupons are available by mail order for $10 with a check made payable to the Arkansas Department of Health along with a copy of acceptable ID and a completed application sent to the following address:
Arkansas Department of Health
Vital Records Section, Slot 44

Little Rock, AR 72205
Tel: (501) 661-2339
You may also go to the State Vital Records Office in person to request a certified copy of an Arkansas marriage coupon.
Online ordering and telephone ordering is not available directly from the state.
