Why You May Need a Salt Lake County Marriage Certificate

There are several reasons that you may need a certified copy of a marriage certificate, most of which have to do with a name change. A marriage certificate provides verifiable, or certified proof of a person's identity, in succession. For example, if Mary Smith marries John Doe, her birth certificate will still read Mary Smith, but her name is now Mary Doe. A marriage certificate will provide the way this change came about. Many companies and agencies may require a marriage certificate, such as:

  • When applying for a name change on social security, driver's license, or passport.
  • To change health care or death benefits from an insurance company.
  • When changing or adding to a bank account, loan, or mortgage.
  • When changing the deed or title to the property.
  • Any other reasons where proof of identity is required.
