How do we obtain a Informal Marriage Certificate?

The application for an Informal Marriage Certificate is similar to the Marriage License. However, you cannot use an absent applicant form and both applicants must come in together when applying.  You may start the process by filling in the application online or in person.

You will need to bring a state or federal issued identification that shows your date of birth (drivers license, state ID, etc.) We will ask you for your social security number and place of birth. You must be 18 years old. The cost is $47 cash, money order, credit or debit card. You will also need to provide a date that you begin living together as a married couple.   Some entities may not acknowledge an Informal Marriage Certificate.
