When you need to apostille a Mississippi marriage certificate, you will need to make sure to have a certified copy of the vital record beforehand. If you need to order one, your best bet is to go through the Mississippi State Department of Health. Here's what their website says about obtaining one:
Mississippi marriage records are maintained by state and county officials. You can order a copy of a marriage record from MSDH, and you can have us search for the county in which the marriage license was issued.
Order by mail: mail the form below with a check or money order to us. (Marriage records are available for January 1, 1926 to June 30, 1938, and for January 1, 1942 to present.)
Order on-line or by phone from a private vital records service, using a credit card.
Come in person to our Ridgeland Office at 222 Marketridge Drive between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. You may pay by cash, check, money order or credit card/debit card. The record will be mailed within 7 - 10 business days of ordering.
Contact the Circuit Clerk in the county the marriage license was issued.
Note: Though required by law to be registered with MSDH, not all marriage records may be on file with the Office of Vital Records.
For more information, contact our Vital Records office at 601-206-8200, or visit the Vital Records Department home page for health statistics, vital records, reports and data.
You can also contact the Vital Records office by sending e-mail to VRInfo@HealthyMS.com.
