Hello, I'm Richard Goms, we're here in Salt Lake City, Utah and we're talking about how to determine if a person is married. There are a number of ways of determining if a person is married. You can check with the state, you can run a background check like you would if, the same type of background check like you would if somebody is renting an apartment from you. You can talk to family and friends. If you can narrow down when a marriage might have occurred you can check with the newspaper or maybe they have an index and you could check to see if the name pops up in the index. It may be difficult to determine if a person is married if they're from out of the country because they may not have registered their marriage properly.
