| The County Clerk's Real Property Records search website now contains Marriage Licenses
The Denton County marriage records go back to 1875. In 1875, the courthouse burned and the records were destroyed. Marriage records are recorded in the county where the marriage license was purchased, not the county where the marriage took place.
You are welcome to search the marriage license records on our website for free at: Real Property Records Search website. You will need to select "Marriages Name Search" from the Search Criteria menu located in the top left corner of your screen. On this site you are able to research, view, and print copies of marriage licenses for free.
In addition to printing from the website, you may obtain a copy of a marriage record filed in Denton County, by either sending in a written request along with the appropriate fees or come to any of our three office locations in person.
If sending a written request, please include both names as they appear on the marriage license and the date of marriage. Non-certified copies of marriage records are $1.00 plus $1.00 per page. Certified copies of marriage records are $26.00 plus $1.00 per page. Your cashier's check or money order should be made payable to: Juli Anne Luke, Denton County Clerk. Written requests are normally processed the day we receive them and mailed out the next business day. Click on the following link to visit the Bureau of Vital Statistics site on Marriage Indexes
