To Apply for a Marriage License
The couple will need to apply together and in person. You will need to bring a picture I.D. and know your social security information, or if you are not a citizen of the U.S., we will need a valid passport and visa. There is a $30.00 CASH ONLY license fee.
After you apply for your license, there is a 24 Hour Waiting Period before you can pick up your license. Example: If you applied for you license at 2:37 pm on a Monday you would have to wait until at least 2:37 pm on Tuesday before you can pick up you license. Only one person needs to come back and pick up the marriage license, you do not have to be together to pick up a license after the waiting period.

Just a Note From the Court:
As the process for inputting your information into our computer system takes several minutes, The Court asks that couples applying for a marriage license arrive at the court no later than 4:45 p.m.
We do not perform marriage ceremonies in the Union County Probate Court; you will need to find your own officiant.
