Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
The Marin County Clerk’s office is happy to assist you with your marriage license by booking an appointment through this website. To make sure your marriage license appointment goes smoothly, please note the following guidelines:
1.) Due to our current overwhelming demand for marriage licenses, we are prioritizing Marin County residents for marriage license appointments. For priority booking, please provide proof of residency in the form below.
2.) Prior to beginning the process, review the Name Equality Act of 2007 and other important information about applying for a marriage license in the Marin County Clerk’s Office.
3.) Complete the online marriage license application using this link:
Online Marriage License Application (marincounty.org)
4.) On the day of your appointment, check in at the Marin County Recorder’s Office, 3501 Civic Center Drive, Room 232. Arrive at least 5 minutes before your appointment. Due to an overwhelming volume of marriage license requests, we are unable to hold your appointment for more than 5 minutes. Those who arrive late will need to reschedule their appointment.
Thank you for your patience. Our goal is to accomodate your request as soon as possible.
