Marriage License Application
Requirements for obtaining a marriage license

    In applying for a marriage license, both the prospective groom (male) and bride (female) must appear in person before a marriage license agent.
    A marriage license is issued immediately after the application is accepted by a marriage license agent, and it is valid statewide. A marriage license expires 30 days from and including the date of issuance.
    To marry, males and females must be at least 15 years of age. Males and females who are 16 or 17 years of age must have the written consent of both parents, or of the legal guardian, or other person in whose care and custody the minor has been placed, or of the family court judge who has jurisdiction over the minor child. Males and females may marry at age 15 years with written consent of both parents and legal guardian and the written approval of the judge of the family court. No one under 15 years of age may marry.
    Proof of age in the form of a certified birth certificate must be presented to the marriage license agent by any applicant who is under 19 years of age. Proof of age will be requested for those applicants over 18 in the form of an I.D. or driver's license.
    If previously married, proof of original divorce decree or death certificate needs to be presented to the marriage agent by the applicant if the divorce or death was final within 30 days of applying for a marriage license. NO FAX COPY WILL BE ACCEPTED.
    A blood relationship between the prospective groom and the bride must not be closer than first cousins.
    Blood tests are not required.
    The fee for a license is payable online by credit card upon completion of the application.
