Illinois Marriage License: 3 Filing Tips

illinois marriage license

Preparing to file for a marriage license in the state of Illinois?  Follow our insider filing tips to make the process a snap!


Marriage License Tip 1: Apply for your marriage license in the county you will be married in (not your county of residence if it is different)!  There’s nothing worse then standing in line at the county clerk’s office and finding out you need to go to another county office when you reach the front.


Marriage License Tip 2: Most counties in Illinois require that you pay your marriage license fee with cash or a check.  A few county clerk’s offices accept cash only…so when in doubt stop by the ATM before you file.  Fees differ by county and range from $20 to $55.


Marriage License Tip 3: File for your marriage license no more than 59 days before your wedding.  All Illinois marriage licenses expire 60 days from the date they are issued. An expired marriage license will not help you become legally married….whomp…whomp…whomp!
