Marriage License Information

 

As you may already know, I do not provide the marriage license. Below is information on how to obtain your marriage license, pricing, and location information. 

 

Please note that due to COVID-19 County Recorder Offices are issuing marriage licenses by appointment only and a few are doing it via video conferencing like Skype and Zoom. 

Application:

Before a marriage license can be issued, First Person and Second Person must provide in a valid photo I.D. (e.g., drivers license, military I.D., passport, or green card, etc.)

To obtain a Confidential Marriage License, First Person and Second Person must be living together as a married couple. The same I.D. requirements as mentioned above are applicable.

There are two different types of marriage licenses in California, and they can be obtained in two different ways.

Confidential Marriage License and a Public Marriage License:

 

  • A “public” California marriage license is a marriage license that is available to the public for viewing.

  • A “confidential” marriage license allows all the personal information on a marriage license to be protected from public view. Only a court order or a notarized application by either spouses can obtain a copy of the information.

The following information is required on a marriage license application.

For both spouses, or party A and party B, the information needed for marriage license requirements is below.

  • A valid driver’s license or a DMV issued Identification Card. If you do not have either of these, you must provide
    a certified copy of your birth certificate and another acceptable form of picture I.D.

     

  • To obtain a Confidential Marriage License, party A and party B must be living together as a married couple. The same I.D. requirements as mentioned above are applicable.
