Marriage License and Ceremony Information

  • Issuance of Marriage Licenses and Civil Ceremonies are by appointment only.
    Please click here Schedule Appointment to schedule an appointment. Customers do not need to schedule a separate appointment for their ceremony. The marriage license appointment link can be used for both services.
  • Ceremony appointments are limited to the couple and a maximum of four guests.
  • As of April 30, 2020, Executive Order N-58-20 allows for the issuance of Marriage Licenses via videoconferencing at the discretion of the County Clerk. Our office is not issuing marriage licenses or performing ceremonies via video conference at this time. Fresno County is currently researching the technological equipment and process changes which would be required for this possible conversion.
