MARRIAGE LICENSE APPLICATION INFORMATION:
Couples may complete an on-line marriage license application at the Recorder’s office between the hours of 8:00 am – 3:30 pm or by using your home computer or mobile device completing the steps outlined on the following site: https://moms.mn.gov/application
Completing the on-line application is the first step in applying for a marriage license. Both applicants must appear in person at the Recorder’s office to finish the process. You will need to sign the application, show valid driver’s license or state issued photo ID and pay the appropriate fee(s). If you apply outside the office, once you appear at the Recorder’s office you will inform office staff that you applied on-line, give your names, and they will access and retrieve the application for further processing.
The marriage license is valid for a period of six (6) months and may be used only in Minnesota.
You will be provided with ONE certified copy of the marriage certificate as courtesy from the Recorder’s Office.
