Marriage Licenses

Issuing Times

Marriage licenses are processed between 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. between Monday to Friday. Marriage licenses will not be issued after 4:00 p.m. due to the processing time required. There are no exceptions.

Both individuals must visit the Probate Court together to apply.

Premarital Counseling
If you have had premarital counseling, there is a certificate that must be completed by the person who has administered the counseling to you. The court can provide you with the blank certificate upon request. This completed and notarized certificate must be brought into the court at the time of application for your marriage license.
