Marriage Licenses

Keep the following in mind when applying for a marriage license:

  2. Both applicants must be at least 18 years of age.

  3. Both applicants must be present to apply.

  4. Both applicants must present a valid driver’s license, state ID or birth certificate when applying.

  5. You must apply in the county that you reside in and you can get married anywhere in the state.

  6. If the applicants are from another state, they apply for the license in the county of the state they wish to marry in. The license is good only in that county.

  7. The marriage license counter closes at 3:30 p.m. each day.

  8. Due to the recent budget cuts, the Clerk’s Office can no longer perform marriage ceremonies during office hours.  However, there may be some employees that can perform the ceremony outside of the office.  Please call our office for further inquiries.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  (Effective May 18, 2011)

  9. All fees must be paid by cash or money order. The Delaware County Clerk’s Office will not accept personal checks.

  10. Credit/Debit cards are accepted but there are fees assessed with this type of payment. 

  11. The marriage license fee is $18.00.

  12. If applicants are from another state, the fee for the license will be $60.00.

  13. If applicants would like to be mailed three (3) certified copies of the license after the return to the office, they must provide a self-addressed stamped envelope for the return. Additional certified marriage license copies will be $2.00 per copy.
