Once a couple has indicated to us that they wish to obtain a marriage license, we will determine
that they both have valid photograph ID with birth date and are over 18 years of age, have the $40.00 fee
in cash, and are planning to be married within 20 days. There is a small application form to complete.
We then verify the information they have provided on the application to the ID cards. The marriage
license and certificate are then entered and printed on computer. After the couple has reviewed the
license for accuracy, we will obtain and verify signatures. They will be briefed at that time on how
the license must be completed at the time of their marriage. Upon receipt of the license fee of $40.00
we will congratulate them and send them on their way....smiling!
A Certified Copy of Marriage License after Filing is $15.00
