Marriage Licenses


PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING A MARRIAGE LICENSE:

  • We have reopened to the public with no appointments required. 
  • Marriage licenses must be used within 30 days, so please apply for your license within 30 days of your ceremony.   
  • Save time by completing our worksheet prior to coming into the office.  You can bring it with you or email ahead of time to fccinquiry@fayettecountyclerk.com.
  • Both parties must be present with identification in order to complete your license application. If available, bring multiple forms of identification.
  • You will only be applying for your marriage license at our office.  If you wish to schedule a civil ceremony with a government official, please consult the list of names and numbers available under Marriage License Timeline on our site.
  • Completed marriage licenses can be mailed back to our office, dropped in our garage drop box, or walked back in to the office. Once recorded, your certificate will be mailed to you at the address you designate during the application process.

The marriage license fee is $50.00, payable by cash, check made payable to FCC (in-state personal check from applicants-no third parties), or card (minimal processing fee).
