Planning a wedding? Looking for a marriage record? Doing some genealogical research? Here's your first stop! We can help you apply for a marriage license or prepare a copy of one that's already recorded. You can also visit us in person to search through our record books -- We have recorded marriage records for Wood County beginning in 1801.
Just a quick note: while we handle all inquiries about marriages, divorces are another matter. If you have questions about obtaining a divorce, we suggest you talk with an attorney or, if it's a no-fault divorce, check with the Circuit Clerk's Office at (304) 424-1700.
If you were married in another West Virginia County or are doing some genealogical research and need a record, click here to find that County and the information needed to contact them.
Our hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and you can reach us at (304) 424-1860.
