In addition to marriage records, the Texas Department of State Health Services provides verification letters for legal verification of a marriage. Verification letters are now considered legal substitutes for marriage licenses. It is recommended that individuals first ensure that a verification letter is appropriate for their purposes.

Certified copies of marriage licenses are only available through the county clerk in the county or district where the license was obtained. In addition, lists of marriage records may be downloaded for free, or physical copies can be purchased through the Texas Department of State Health Services.

Verification letters can be found for marriages that occurred from 1966 to the present time. Any individual who places an order through the Texas Department of State Health Services must possess a United States mailing address or a U.S. military address and must have a valid credit card. Even if a marriage record is not located, the verification letter can be considered a "single-status letter."
