How Do I...
You Are Here:
Apply for a Marriage License at the Recorder’s Office (on first floor of the courthouse).
Completed application must be signed by both parties. If one person cannot appear in person to sign, we will provide a copy that may be signed before a notary.
Social Security numbers will be needed to apply.
Please bring picture IDs (driver's license, passport, or state identification card)
The marriage license is valid for 6 months.
There is a portion of the license that must be returned to the Recorder's office no later than five days after the ceremony. We will then issue a Certificate of Marriage.
Marriage License Fee is $115
Proof of premarital education counseling reduces the fee to $40 (must be submitted in format required by Minnesota statutes. See MS 517.08, Subdivision 1b (b))
