  • Proof of residence if address listed on ID is incorrect

The Marriage License must be signed within 30-33 days of the application and will require a signature from the Officiant/Minister, Bride and Groom, and 2 witnesses over the age of 18.

Once signed, the Marriage License must be filed at the County Clerk’s office.
