Obtaining a Marriage License

Both applicants must appear in person with the following:
  • Driver's license or photo I.D. which shows your date of birth
  • Your social security number (your social security card is preferred, but if unavailable, please provide in written form)
  • You will need to know your mothers' maiden names, your parents' current addresses, the state where your parents were born, and your parents' occupations
  • $60.00 filing fee - Cash only

If either applicant is divorced, or divorced more than once, you must bring in your latest divorce decree. If the female has resumed her maiden name after the divorce, she must submit proof of resuming her maiden name. 

If your prior marriage was terminated by death, you must provide the death certificate, or at least a copy of the death certificate, as to your former spouse. 

There is a three-day waiting period between the application and the issuance of license and either applicant can pick up the license after the three-day waiting period. 

Your license is valid for 60 days from the date of issuance and it can only be used in Pennsylvania. 

Non-Pennsylvania residents may also secure a license in our office, but the license can only be used in Pennsylvania. 

If either applicant is under 18 years of age, the consent of the custodial parent or Guardian is necessary. The applicant’s original birth certificate is required. There will be an additional $10.00 fee for each underage applicant. 

If either applicant is under the age of 16, the consent of the Court must be obtained.
