Marriage records like Marriage Records Hawaii are some of the most requested for records from the government because these are the official records of the government in regards to the fact of the marriage. This means that these records are the best evidence that one could present in order to prove the fact of the marriage, and it must be noted that there is a need to prove the fact of the marriage because it is something that would have effects that would be binding upon the whole world as it is something that would change the status of the person who had gotten married. Such change in status follows the person no matter where the person may go.
One of the effects of the fact of the marriage is the fact that the person who had gotten married could not get married again, unless, of course, he or she would simply be marrying his or her spouse in a second marriage. It must be noted that while there is no limit as to the number of times a person could get married, there is a limit to the number of spouses a person could have at any single time, and the maximum would be one person. A person who have two spouses at any given time would probably be guilty of the crime of bigamy and would run the risk of being prosecuted for the same.
As the official records of the government for the fact of the marriage of the person named in the record, these records are afforded the presumption of regularity, which means that the contents of the records are presumed to be true and accurate at all times. The party presenting the copies of the records would be under no obligation to prove that the contents of the records are accurate, but do note that when a party presents copies of these records, they would still have to prove that the contents of the records are obtained from the proper sources, for only such records would be given the presumption of regularity.
A request for copies of the records in question could be done from a number of offices, but most requests would be done at the local level as not only are these offices easier to go to, they could also present the information in question faster and more efficiently, though it must be noted that because they only keep copies of records for marriages that were celebrated within their jurisdiction, it is possible that the person making the request would not be able to find the records at this level. In such a case, there may be no choice but to go to the state level. The method for making the request would either be through the mail or in person depending on the office where the request would be made.
Copies of Hawaii Court Records may also be found online through the use of online databases, and while these databases are not official sources, it must be noted that the information that they could present would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the official sources, though do note that they are not official sources in the strictest interpretation of that term.
