The notarized state form signed by the instructor must be presented when requesting license. The cost for those that choose not to attend premarital classes is $97.50.
After the ceremony has been performed, the Vital Records Application must be signed by the individual performing the ceremony and forwarded to the County Clerk’s Office to be recorded. The Marriage License is given to the Bride/Groom.
If the Marriage License is not used within 30 days, it is voided and a new license must be purchased.
