How to File for a Marriage License in Ohio

Ohio Marriage License Tips

Getting ready to get married in Ohio?  As you coordinate all of the details of your big day, be sure to make time to file for your Ohio marriage license.  A marriage license is the document that allows you to marry legally within the United States (which is a little bit important).


Ohio residents should not head to their county clerk’s office to file for a marriage license.  Unlike most other states, Ohio issues marriage licenses via County Probate Offices.  Another important tip: be sure to hit the ATM machine prior to filing.  Most county probate offices will only accept cash for their marriage license filing fee, which can cost upwards of $76 in some Ohio counties.


Buckeye state residents will also get a taste of married togetherness before saying “I do”.  Both members of the couple wishing to be married are required to be present to file for a marriage license.  Silver lining: you can plan to file around lunch time and then go out to celebrate being one step closer to married!
