The Minnesota Official Marriage System (MOMS), a subcommittee of the Minnesota Association of County Officers (MACO) has partnered with Olmsted County ITS as the new Service Level Provider for the system. Olmsted County ITS will provide hosting services and support for the MOMS from January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2017. The new MOMS site address is www.MOMS.mn.gov.
The Service Level Agreement between MACO and Olmsted County, on behalf of the Minnesota Official Marriage System (MOMS), was approved by the Olmsted County Board of Commissioners on December 5, 2013. Olmsted County is a natural fit for the collaboration as the project is aligned with the Counties' strategic priorities of planning for the future, pursuing operational excellence, and assuring effective, accessible, and responsive services. In addition to providing ongoing support services the collaboration for future enhancements may include, but are not limited to:
- An eMarriage Application
- Credit Card functions by individual counties
- Marriage Officiant Ordination Index
- MDVA Military Discharge Project
MOMS is a collaborative website with all 87 counties in Minnesota participating. The system was developed by the counties in 2008 and has been operational under the website www.mncounty.com. This site will not be functional after December 27, 2013. MOMS functions as an index for customers to find information on the location of a marriage record and to obtain a certified copy of marriage records. Minnesota marriage records are maintained in the county where the license was issued.
