What do I need to get a marriage license?

You need to provide identification and possibly proof of age.  Arizona does not require a blood test or a copy of your dissolution of marriage decree.


How does a marriage license work?

A marriage license expires 12 months after it is issued by the state.  To make a marriage license valid it must have signatures from the individuals looking to get married, two witnesses, and the person who performed the ceremony.  The bottom portion of the license is then mailed into the Clerk of the Superior Court by the person who performed the ceremony.

The following counties have information available online about the fees involved and how to obtain a marriage license.  If your county is not listed, contact your local courthouse.
