Citrus County Marriage Record


Marriage may be something that would involve only the couple who would get married, their families, and the authority that would pronounce them married, but it could not be denied that it is something that would have effects that would be binding upon the whole world, and therein lies the reason why marriage records like Citrus County Marriage Records are some of the most requested for records from the government, after all, as the official records of the government, these records are the best evidence that one could present in order to prove the fact of the marriage, and to prove that the effects of the marriage are indeed anchored upon a valid marriage.

The fact of the marriage would change the status of the person who had gotten married and such change of status is something that would follow the person no matter where the person may go in his or her life. The change of the status of the person brings with it certain rights and responsibilities that would be binding upon the whole world, just as the fact of the marriage would remove from said person certain rights and responsibilities as well. This exchange of rights and responsibilities is the reason why the fact of the marriage precludes the married person from getting married again, unless the first marriage is legally dissolved, or the couple would marry each other again in a second or third ceremony.

As the official records of the government, these records are given the presumption of regularity, and that means that there is no obligation on the part of the party who would present the records from having to prove that the contents of the records are true and accurate, but it must be noted that the presumption is merely prima facie and may be overturned through the use of competent evidence that would be presented by the party who would claim that the records are false. Note further that the presumption works only if the records were obtained from the proper sources, thus, there is still the need to prove that the records were obtained from such proper sources on the part of the party presenting the records.

A request for copies of the records could be done at both the local or county level and the national or state level. It would be the decision of the person who would make the request as to where he or she would take the request, though the inherent advantages and disadvantages of the two levels where the request could be made must be taken into consideration by the person making the request. As for the method for making the request, that would depend on the office where the request would be made, though it would usually be through the mail or in person.

Marriage Records Citrus County are also available online through the use of online databases. These databases could present information that would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the official sources, but note that image these online databases are not official sources for the purpose of the presumption of regularity to apply to them.
