3 Georgia Marriage License Filing Tips

Georgia marriage license tips

Georgia is a “peach” of a state when it comes to engaged couples applying for their marriage license! Follow the tips below to ensure you’re ready for your wedding with zero stress related to your marriage license:


Tip 1: File with the County Probate Court


Also known as Marriage License Bureaus, county clerk’s offices are typically located within your county probate court or circuit court. This office is where you apply for your marriage license in Georgia.


Tip 2: File Together & Bring Identification Documents


All counties in Georgia require both parties getting married to file in-person for a marriage license. Be sure that you and your fiancé bring your birth certificates, driver’s licenses or state-issued IDs, and your Social Security cards when you file. These documents are needed to verify your identities and issue your marriage license. *Word to the wise: make sure you have all of the required documents well before you file for your license (in case you need to order new copies or need your parents to locate them).


Tip 3: Pre-Marital Courses Can Save You Cash


If you elect to take a pre-marital course from a licensed marriage counselor within 12 months of your wedding, your county will discount your marriage license application by $40! Consider it added incentive to spend 6 hours building the foundation for a marriage that will last a lifetime! *To receive the discount remember to bring your course completion documentation.
