Apply for a Marriage License

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 either one of our offices to purchase the license.

Please review the Marriage License Requirements and Name Change Information 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 do not need an appointment to purchase the license, and processing time is typically 20-30 minutes. Please be sure to arrive no later than 4:00pm. Please do not wait until the Friday afternoon of your weekend ceremony to obtain the license. Please consider obtaining your marriage license 30 days prior to your planned ceremony.
