Marriage Licenses


Click here for information on the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Proposition 8. 

Before a marriage license can be issued, First Person and Second Person must bring in 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, First Person and Second Person must be living together as a married couple. The same I.D. requirements as mentioned above are applicable.

A wedding facility is available in the County Clerk's office and a civil marriage commissioner is on site to perform marriage ceremonies.

Amendment on a Marriage License - Within the first year there is no fee but there is a $15.00 fee for a certified copy of the Amendment. After a year there is a fee of $20.00 which includes the certified copy. Declaration for a Marriage License - $50.00.
