How to Apply

Both parties must appear at the County Clerk’s Office with proof of age, proper identification, and pay a license fee of $35 by check, cash, money order, debit or credit card. The license fee is non-refundable and includes one certified copy.

Identification and proof of age is required of all persons.

When to Apply

Both parties need to be present with required documents. A marriage license is then issued and becomes effective immediately but must be used within 32 days from the date of purchase, at which time the license expires. Refunds and extensions cannot be granted. A license issued in Washington County may be used in any county in the State of Utah.

Minors Requesting a Marriage License

A minor (16 or 17 year old) must obtain consent from a parent or legal guardian. A parent or legal guardian must give sworn consent in person at the time of application and must have proper identification. If the parents of the minor are divorced, consent shall be given by the parent having legal custody of the minor by presenting court documentation and an oath of affirmation to the clerk. If the parents of the minor are divorced and have been awarded joint custody of the minor, consent shall be given by the parent having physical custody of the minor the majority of the time as evidenced by an oath of affirmation to the clerk. If the minor is not in the custody of a parent, the legal guardian shall provide the consent and proof of guardianship by court order as well as an oath of affirmation. A certified birth certificate of the minor must also be provided.

Certified Copies

Marriage Licenses are now considered a Vital Record so that limits who may receive a copy. If you fall under this category according to Utah State Code 26-2-22, you may fill in the online request below, request in-person or by mail.

Inspection of vital records.

  1. As used in this section:
    • “Designated legal representative” means an attorney, physician, funeral service director, genealogist, or other agent of the subject, or an immediate family member of the subject, who has been delegated the authority to access vital records.
    • “Drug use intervention or suicide prevention effort” means a program that studies or promotes the prevention of drug overdose deaths or suicides in the state.
    • “Immediate family member” means a spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, or grandchild.

If you do not fall into any of these categories (this does not pertain to Government Entities), please know that you will not be able to get a copy or any information regarding the license or marriage. If you do fall into the categories above, when requesting a certified copy, you will be required to provide your Government issued ID. Additional Forms of identification may be required.

The current cost for a certified copy of the license is $9 for the first copy and $5 for each additional copy. Please note that the online request form does not charge you, we will be contacting you for the payment.

Additional certified copies of your marriage license are available upon request in-person, online, or by mail.

If requesting by mail or in-person, please fill out the form below and include a copy of the front and back of your Government Issued ID:
