Washington Marriage Records Search

Washington 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 January 1, 1968 to the present, copies of Washington marriage certificates are available for purchase from both the State Department of Health and the County Auditor’s Office in the county where the marriage license was issued. Marriage records prior to January 1, 1968 or recent marriage records (within the last two months) are only available directly from the County Auditor’s Office.

Certified copies of Washington marriage records are available by mail order for $20 with a check or money order made payable to the Department of Health, along with a completed application sent to the following address:
