The all states answer:
The church is recognized nationally and the ordination is valid. To find out what the state requires for verification if any and what you are legally allowed to do, you should ask the local court clerk. Additionally you can check out the websites FAQ.
http://www.themonastery.org/?destination=u...aryMarriageLaws should give you an idea of where to start.

Scroll down to your state and read there. Michigan has what looks like a number of loops to hop through before you can do weddings. Once again, the advice here is ask the court clerk that deals with marriage licenses for the most current information.

In the beginning, now and in the end.

I also live in MI. I have contacted Lansing and was told that as long as your ordination was valid, as well as in good standing, with the ordaining organization, then you were considered legal to perform marriage ceremonies. You might want to check with your local county clerk to determine if they want you to register with them as an officiant.

I have a printed copy of my letter of good standing with ULC as well as a certificate - just in case of question.
