Under Oregon law county marriage offices have primary responsibility for issuing marriage licenses and certificates. Once filed at the local county marriage office, certificates are forwarded to the State Vital Records office to create a permanent statewide file.
All requests to change an Oregon marriage certificate must be approved by the county marriage office that issued the license.
If you know the local county marriage office has requested the Oregon vital records office to correct your marriage certificate, you may check the status of the amendment by emailing: CHS.Amendments@oha.oregon.gov.
