Pope County participates in the Minnesota Official Marriage System (MOMS) MOMS was created in 2008 under the Minnesota Association of County Officials (MACO) umbrella to provide customer service in searching and requesting marriage records statewide. Since then, MOMS accelerated to phase two, extending their customer service to include a marriage application online. MOMS eMarriage process also includes the administration side of the application for county staff to auto populate the required documents from the application, creating efficiency and effectiveness of county staff, and uniformity between counties. Customer service is improved by allowing couples to apply online, anywhere, 24/7. While efforts to standardize the application process across the state began in 2008, if successful, Minnesota will be the first state to introduce this collaboration.
