Marriage Licenses are issued between the hours of 8 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m by appointment only.
You may purchase a Regular or Confidenital marriage license. A Regular license is a public record and requires only one witness. A Confidential license is not a public record (requires a court order to obtain a copy for someone other than the parties on the license) and does not require a witness. Both licenses are valid anywhere in the state of California and are valid for 90 days.
To obtain a license both parties must be present with valid photo identification and 18 years of age or older. If either party has been divorced in the last 90 days, a certified copy of the final dissolution is required.
Marriage license can be paid for by Cash, Money Order or Debit/Credit Card ($2.50 service fee), please see Fee Schedule for license and ceremony costs.
