MOMS


MOMS is a statewide search engine for marriage certificates. MOMS allow the public to search and order a marriage certificate from the custodial county or contact the custodial county directly, if it is known, where the marriage license was obtained.

Note: The marriage certificate is filed with the county where the marriage license was obtained, not the county where the marriage took place.
