Louisiana Marriage Records Search

Louisiana marriage records are typically available as part of the public record and managed at the parish level. The state manages only Orleans Parish Marriage Records.

For the most current 50 years, certified copies of Orleans Parish marriage certificates are available for purchase from the State Office of Vital Records and Statistics. Orleans Parish marriage records over 50 years old are available from the Louisiana State Archives. Copies of all other Louisiana marriage records are only available from the Clerk of Court’s office in the parish where the marriage license was issued.

Certified copies of Orleans Parish marriage certificates are available by mail order for $5 with a check or money order made payable to the Bureau of Vital Records and Statistics, along with a copy of a valid photo ID and a completed application sent to the following address:

Bureau of Vital Records and Statistics
P.O. Box 60630
New Orleans, LA 70160
Tel: (504) 593-5100

You may also go to the Vital Records Central Office in person to request a certified copy of an Orleans Parish marriage certificate.

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