Michigan Marriage Records Search

Michigan 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 1867 to the present, copies of Michigan marriage certificates are available for purchase from both the State Vital Records Office and the County Clerk’s Office in the county where the marriage license was issued. Marriage records prior to 1867 are only available directly from the County Clerk’s Office.

Certified copies of Michigan marriage records are available by mail order for $34 with a check or money order made payable to the State of Michigan, along with a completed application sent to the following address:

Vital Records Request
P.O. Box 30721
Lansing, MI 48909
Tel: (517) 335-8656

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