    There are various reasons why people would want to prove the fact of the marriage, but perhaps the most important reason is because of the fact that marriage is something that would change the status of the person who had gotten married, and such change in status is accompanied by the attachment of certain rights and privileges upon the person of the one who had gotten married. One of these rights would be the right and the privilege to live together, and the right and privilege to inherit from his or her spouse, and these rights and privileges would follow the person no matter where the person may go in his or her life. It is also for this reason that the fact of the marriage cannot be defeated by simply running away to a different jurisdiction.

    As the official records of the government, these records are afforded the presumption of regularity such that the contents of the records are presumed to be true and accurate at all times. This simply means that the party presenting copies of the records would be under no obligation to prove that the contents of the records are true and accurate, but do note that the presumption applies only image if the records in question were obtained from the proper sources, thus, while there is no need to prove that the records contain true information, there is still the need to prove that the records were obtained from the proper sources. Note as well that the presumption is not conclusive and could be overturned through the use of competent evidence on the part of the party who would claim that the records are false.

    A request for copies of the records in question could be done at either the state level or the county level, with both levels having their own associated advantages and disadvantages that would have to be taken into consideration by the person making the request. In general, a request at the local or county level would be faster as there would be fewer records that would have to be checked at this level, but do note that this is only because these offices only keep copies of records for marriages that were celebrated within their jurisdiction. The method for making the request would also depend on the office where the request would be made.

    El Dorado County Marriage License Records may also be obtained online through the use of online databases, but take note that despite the fact that these databases could provide information that would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the official sources, any and all information obtained through them could not be used for official purposes.
