Kansas Marriage Records Search
Kansas marriage records are not open to the public at the state level and can only be accessed by the registrant, immediate family members, a legal representative or persons with a direct interest. At the county level, Kansas marriage records are not confidential and accessible by the public.
For marriage records since May 1, 1913 to the present, copies of Kansas marriage certificates are available for purchase from both the State Office of Vital Statistics and the Clerk of the District Court's office in the county where the marriage license was issued. Marriage records prior to May 1913 are only available directly from the County Clerk of the District Court.
