Reminders for completing marriage certificates
According to Statute 71-614, "If no marriages were performed in the county during the preceding month, a card furnished by the department indicating such information shall be submitted on or before the fifth day of each month to the department."
Vital Records is pleased to announce that effective December 1, 2010, you can now scan your card indicating no marriages and then email it or you can fax it instead of using regular mail. In lieu of the "no records filed" card, you may email that information. Please email to DHHS.MarriageandDissolution@nebraska.gov or fax it to 402-742-8351.
Please remember after entering the marriage date in the system to mark the record complete on the complete tab and save the document. Thank you!
