Arizona Marriage License Application Tips

image (16)

Arizona is one of the easiest states to file for a marriage license in! Unlike many other states, there is zero wait time to receive a marriage license. That means you can walk out with a marriage license the same day that you file for it (although we highly recommend picking it up earlier than the day of your wedding). Also, be sure to arrive 30 minutes before the office closes so there is time for your application to be processed. Most Arizona county clerks’ offices shut their doors at 4:00pm but check your specific county to be certain.

Getting married in a county outside the one you live in? Again, zero drama! Marriage licenses that are issued in Arizona are valid in any county….so no need to trek to your wedding county to file. Each county has a different filing fee and different methods of payment that they will accept. Fees range from $72 to $90 and cash is the best payment method at any office.

Be sure that you and your fiancé are both present to file for your marriage license and bring social security cards and personal identification documents such as a driver’s license or U.S. Passport. Some offices will also want to see your birth certificates.
