Marriage certificates to be available statewide
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Wood County Register of Deeds Tiffany Ringer said that it will soon be easier to obtain a copy of a Wisconsin marriage certificate. Effective Jan. 2, individuals married in Wisconsin will be able to go to any state register of deeds office to obtain their marriage certificate.
Register of Deeds offices are currently able to issue birth certificates from all Wisconsin counties. Certificates of death are available statewide for deaths occurring on or after Sept. 1, 2013. Certificates of divorce are available statewide for divorces, Jan. 1, 2016 to present.
Ringer adds that while not all vital records are eligible for statewide issuance; the State Vital Records Office continues to work with register of deeds offices to add or update specific vital records on demand, with the goal of having all eligible records available.
