You may view and print a copy of the Premarital Certification Form. Payment shall be in the form of cash, money order, visa or mastercard (a convenience fee applies if card used). Checks are not accepted.

  • No one under the age of 16 shall be issued a marriage license under any circumstance, even if she is pregnant or has a child together with the prospective spouse

Parental Requirements
If father is not listed on the birth certificate (a certified copy of the birth certificate must be provided to the court), he is not required to sign.

Previous Marriages
Must not have a living spouse or previous undissolved marriage. If previous spouse is deceased, a date of death must be provided. If divorced within the last six months, the court must be provided a certified copy of the final divorce decree signed by the judge.

Additional Information
Once the ceremony has taken place, the person performing the ceremony will send the original license to the probate court to be recorded. It will take approximately 10 days after the original license has been returned to probate court before certified copies can be made.

A blood test is no longer required in order to obtain a marriage license.
