Marriage records like Tuscarawas County Marriage License are some of the most requested for records from the government owing to the fact that these are the official records of the government in regards to the fact of the marriage of the couple named in the record. As the official records, they are given the presumption of regularity and that makes them the best evidence that one could present in order to prove the fact of the marriage. The question then becomes why there is a need to prove the fact of the marriage, and the answer to that question lies in the fact that marriage is something that would change the status of the couple who would get married, and that change of status carries with it certain rights and responsibilities.
A single person whose status is single is given the right to get married to any person that he or she would chose provided that they meet some basic requirements. One of those requirements would be the fact that the person is not in a marriage that is still in existence, hence, the reason why his status is still single. This is because the married person may not get married to another person who is not his or her spouse without the first marriage being dissolved first, though it is incorrect to say that a person who is already married could not get married again. The truth is that such person could get married again without the first marriage being dissolved, provided, however, that the marriage would be with his or her spouse.
A marriage record is a public record, and this means that any person may make the request for copies of the records at any time at the proper offices, but note that just because these records are public records does not mean that they come for free. Indeed, the only way that the government could regulate the number of people who would make the request for copies of these records would be by prescribing a required fee that one must pay when making the request, though it must be noted that the required fee is not really that high and would not present a true obstacle to any person who would like to make the request for the same.
Copies of the records could be requested from a number of offices at both the local or county level and the national or state level, and both levels would have their own inherent set of advantages and disadvantages that would have to be taken into consideration by the person making the request. The procedure that one must follow when making the request at this offices would also have their own inherent set of advantages and disadvantages that would have to be taken into consideration.
Tuscarawas County Court Records are also available online through the use of online databases. These databases are not official sources, but the information that they could provide would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the official sources, and they could present the information faster and more efficiently.
