Yet, one must remember that divorce is something that would affect the whole world even if they were not even aware of the fact of the marriage because marriage is something that would change the status of the person who had gotten married. Logically, that which would dissolve something that would have an effect upon the whole world should also be something that the whole world is concerned about.<br /><br />It must be remembered that marriage is something that changes the status of the person who had gotten married <img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2937/33998992162_2ce8e0ffe3.jpg" align="left" width="288" style="padding:10px;"/> and together with such change of status comes certain rights and responsibilities that would be binding upon the whole world, and binding upon the person who had gotten married wherever he or she may go. This is the reason why a person whose first marriage is still in existence could not escape the fact that he or she is married by simply running to a different jurisdiction. The fact that he or she is married follows the person and because of that, the limitations imposed upon by the marriage would also follow him or her.<br /><br />Divorce records contain sensitive information and realizing this, the law says that only those people who were involved in the divorce, or those who were related to them, may make the request for the same. Of course, even a stranger to the divorce may make a request for certification of the existence of the records, and while this would not give the actual records to the person making the request, the fact that the records exists could be taken, at face value, that the divorce was granted. After all, the records would only exist if the divorce was granted, and because of the presumption of regularity, a person may presume that the divorce was granted in the regular course of business and valid.<br /><br />Copies of the certification may be requested only at the state level and the procedure would require the person interested in the certification to send a request letter to the Texas Department of Health. The letter should contain the name of the parties to the divorce, the approximate date when it was granted and the place where it was granted. The department would reply within six to eight weeks with a certification as to the existence of the record and the place where the record may be found. It must be noted that the place where the record may be found is the venue of the search for the actual records should there be a need for them.<br /><br />Brazoria County Marriage Records may also be found online through the use of online archives. These archives could present information that would be substantially the same as that which may be found from the official archives, but because they are internet based, they could present the information faster and more efficiently, and most would charge only the most minimum of fees for the use of their services.</div>
