Courts will receive applications by encrypted email or mail
Marriage license paperwork requires the applicant to provide a photo identification that includes personally identifiable information, such as date of birth, Social Security number, or driver’s license number.

Prior marriage license applications will not be processed
If a person submitted a marriage license application before courts closed to in-person contact on March 18, 2020, and the marriage license was not issued, the person will need to submit a new application to a court issuing marriage licenses using this new process. This applies even if the earlier application was submitted to a court that will now issue marriage licenses, and it is to ensure all requirements are met.
