How to Obtain Arizona Marriage Certificates
Arizona began statewide recording of births and deaths in July, 1909, though the Office of Vital Records has collected many of these records from 1884 and 1887 respectively. Marriage records, however, are still recorded in the county Superior Court clerk's office where the marriage occurred.
