    The reason why marriage records like Santa Clara Marriage Records are some of the most requested records from the government would be because these are the official records of the government in regards to the marriage of the persons whose name appears on the face of the record. It must be remembered that while marriage is often something that would involve only two people and their families, marriage is also something that would have effects that would be binding upon the world, and it is for this reason that there is sometimes the need to prove the fact of the marriage.One of the effects of marriage would be the fact that while the marriage is in existence, the person who had gotten married could not get married again unless he or she is going to renew his or her vows with the person to whom he or she is already married. This limitation would follow the married person no matter where in the world he or she may go, and the fact that the person had become subjected to a different set of laws and rules would have no effect as the fact of the marriage is something that changes the status of the person who had gotten married. Thus, if one could prove that the person who is planning to get married is already married to someone else, then the marriage in question may become a basis for criminal prosecution.The reason why these records are the best evidence that one could present is because these records are the official records of the government in regards to the fact of the marriage of the persons who are named in the record. As the official records of the government, these records are presumed to be true and accurate at all times, thus, the person who would present the copies of the records before the proper tribunals would be under no obligation to prove that the contents of the records are true and accurate. This is because the records are already presumed to be true and accurate, but one must remember that the presumption would only apply if the records were obtained from the proper sources.The request for a copy of the marriage records may be done at both the local or county level and the national or state level. in general, a request for copies of the records would be faster at the local level as there would be fewer records at this level, but it must be remembered that a request at this level would also be limited for local level offices could only provide records for marriages that were celebrated within the jurisdiction of the local level office where the search is being made.Santa Clara County Marriage License Records may also be viewed and requested online through the use of online archives. Most of these archives would be privately owned, but the information that they could provide would be substantially the same as that which could be found in the official archives, but these databases could provide the information faster and more efficiently.
