How Do I Apply for a Marriage License?

Due to Covid, hours for marriage license application are 9 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.    To avoid delays, be sure you and your fiance come together, bring valid government issued photo IDs (usually a driver’s license) and $51 exact cash or credit card only (credit card convenience fee of $2 added by the processing company). We will ask for social security numbers, but do not need to see the cards. If either party has been married before, we need the exact date the marriage ended. We do not need to see any paperwork.  You will receive the license the same day you apply.  It must be used within 30 days or you will have to reapply (additional fee applies).
