How to obtain Proof of Marriage

For proof of marriage, you may obtain a certified copy of your Marriage Certificate from the Washoe County Recorder's Office.

It is important to note that marriage certificate copies are available for licenses that were issued in Washoe County.  If you went to the Washoe County Clerk's Office, filled out an application and obtained a license to get married, and the "I do" ceremony was performed, your marriage certificate should be located in the Washoe County Recorder's Office.

To order a certified copy of your Marriage Certificate by phone, please contact our office at 775-328-3660, Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm.

As an alternative, you can print our Request for Marriage Record form marriage request form.pdf.  Fill out the form and fax it to 775-325-8009, or mail it to the Washoe County Recorder, Attn. Marriages, P.O. Box 11130, Reno, NV, 89520.
