General Information
Scheduling an appointment will eliminate wait time, as walk-ins may wait as long as 2 hours. The average appointment lasts approximately 30 minutes. Marriage licenses are issued on the day of your appointment and are valid for 90 days. If not used within 90 days, a new license must be purchased.
