Kentucky Marriage Records Search

Kentucky marriage records are typically available as part of the public record and are managed at both the state and county level.

For marriage records since June 1958 to the present, copies of Kentucky marriage certificates are available for purchase from both the State Office of Vital Statistics and the County Clerk’s Office in the county where the marriage license was issued. Marriage records prior to June 1958 are only available directly from the County Clerk’s Office.

Certified copies of Kentucky marriage certificates are available by mail order for $6 with a check or money order made payable to the Kentucky State Treasurer, along with a completed application sent to the following address:

Office of Vital Statistics
Department for Public Health
Cabinet for Health and Family Services
275 East Main Street 1E-A
Frankfort, KY 40621
Tel: (502) 564-4212

You may also go to the State Office of Vital Statistics in person to request a certified copy of a Kentucky marriage certificate.

Online ordering and telephone ordering is not available directly from the state.
