3 Kentucky Marriage License Application Tips

Kentucky Marriage License Tips

Are you getting ready to walk down the aisle in Kentucky? Hold your horses (yes we went there) and read these tips to ensure your marriage license filing process goes smoothly!


Tip 1: No Need to Wait


There is no wait time for marriage licenses in Kentucky, so you can walk into the county clerk’s office and walk out with a marriage license the same day. Just be sure to arrive 30 minute before the office closes so the clerk has time to process your application and issue your license!


Tip 2: Apply 2-3 Weeks Before Your Wedding Date


Marriage licenses are valid for 30 dates from the date of issue in Kentucky, so apply for your license before but not too ahead of your wedding. You don’t want to be down to the wire and stressed about filing the day of your wedding, but you also don’t want to miscalculate and apply for a license too soon and have it expire before you say “I do.”


Tip 3: Together Is Better


All county clerk offices in Kentucky require that both partners be present to file for the marriage license. Be sure that you both bring proof of identification such as Social Security cards and driver’s licenses. You can also expect to pay $35+ for your marriage license. Specific county information can be found by searching your county on our website!
