Due to COVID-19, we are issuing marriage licenses by appointment only, during normal business hours Monday – Friday. Appointment attendance is limited to the couple and (1) one witness. Any couple that brings more than (1) one additional person onto County property will have their appointment cancelled.
NOTE: You must have a wedding ceremony in order to be legally married
Congratulations on your engagement!
We are happy to assist you through the marriage license process.

Marriage licenses are issued by the County Clerk-Recorder's Office and must be purchased before your wedding ceremony. You may submit the application online or in person. After submitting the application, you must appear together at our office to sign and purchase the license.
Please review the Marriage License Requirements and Name Change Information below before submitting an application. Please note, the time at which you purchase your license will be your only opportunity to change your middle and/or last names through the marriage license process.
You need an appointment to purchase the license, and processing time is typically 20-30 minutes. Please be sure to arrive prompt to your scheduled appointment time. Please do not wait until the day prior to your ceremony to obtain the license. You may obtain your marriage license up to 90 days prior to your planned ceremony.
