Marriage Licenses in Alaska: Surprising Filing Facts

Alaska Marriage License Info

Tying the knot in Alaska? It can be a challenge to figure out the marriage license application process in the Northern-most state.  True to it’s pioneer spirit, Alaska has a unique way of handling marriage license applications.

Most states require both engaged parties to file their marriage license application in person at a county clerks office.  Not so in Alaska!  Simply download the correct marriage license application from Vital Statistics, complete it and print it out.  Write a check for the marriage license processing fee (typically $60) and then mail your completed application and check to your county Vital Statistics office.

While couples can mail in their application, they do need to pick up their marriage license from the Vital Statistics office.  If you’re in a hurry, your marriage license will be ready 3 business days after it was received.  If you’re busy wedding planning, the office will hold your marriage license for 12 months!
