About Marriage License Offices

What is the cost of a marriage license?

The cost of a marriage license varies depending on the Marriage License Office. Most marriage license fees range from $20 to $100. In some states, the fee may be waived if the couple completes a premarital course or counseling.

Do both members of the couple have to be present to receive a marriage license?

Yes. Whether you complete the license application online or in the Marriage License Office, both parties must appear together to sign the license at the time it is issued and both must present photo identification.

If I am divorced, do I need to bring divorce papers to get a marriage license?

Divorce papers are typically not required. It is up to the applicant to provide accurate information concerning prior marriages on the marriage license application.
