OIhio Marriage License nformation
When And Where Should We Apply For An Ohio Marriage License?
Obtaining a marriage license has become a simple process. You don’t need to worry about a blood test, this is no longer a requirement. Since requirements can vary from county to county – some counties have a waiting period – it is wise to give them a call before applying for a license.
The following are specific requirements to obtain your marriage license. Both parties must go together to the County Courthouse where at least one applicant resides.
It’s best to go about 30 days before the ceremony. The license will be valid for 60 days anywhere in the state of Ohio.
Bring cash. Most courthouses will not accept checks or credit cards.
All applicants must provide a Social Security Card and proof of age and identity with a valid driver’s license, Passport or Birth Certificate.
If either party is remarrying, be sure to bring the certificate of divorce or death certificate for the spouse in the prior marriage.
Both applicants must provide name, age, address, place and date of birth, occupation, social security number, father’s name and mother’s maiden name.
If either party is under age 16, call the courthouse to see if further procedures are necessary.
