Notice to Petitioners
At or before the court hearing on this petition, you must provide to the court a completed (filled-in) order for the judicial officer to sign.
The order must be prepared on a form issued by the California Department of Public Health Vital Records (CDPH Vital Records), the
Order Establishing Fact of Marriage (form VS 122). The top portion of that form is the court order. The bottom portion of that form is
the marriage certificate you must submit for filing to CDPH Vital Records with a copy of the signed order certified by the clerk of the
court. Form VS 122 may be obtained from CDPH Vital Records or from a county recorder or health department. Information about the
form, including instructions on how to get it and how to complete and file it with the court and with CDPH Vital Records, is available

But the order on this petition or the marriage certificate filed with CDPH Vital Records will not necessarily establish the
