I Want to Get Married

City Clerk's Office

Marriage Licenses are issued by the City Clerk's Office and applicants are required to apply in person.

This process cannot be conducted through the mail. 

Marriage Licenses cost $35. 

A license will be issued three days after you apply in person and can be picked up by either applicant at the Clerk's Office.


Application for a Marriage License must be made in person with both applicants. No documentation is required.
