Applicants must be 18 years of age. 17 year olds may apply when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who will be required to sign a consent form. Both groom and bride must appear in person. Marriage licenses are not issued through the mail. Please bring your driver’s license or other ID with you.
A license may be purchased in any county within Oregon and it may be used only in the State of Oregon.
The fee is $50.00 payable by Cash, Money order, or Check. We do not accept credit or debit cards.
There is a three (3) day waiting period before the license may be used. You may request a waiver of the waiting period. The license is good for 60 days and will expire after that time if not used. No medical examinations or blood tests are required.
After the marriage has taken place, the completed marriage license must be returned to our office. A certified copy can be obtained from the County Clerk’s Office for $4.00. The certified copy is a legal copy and can be used by the bride to change her name on her driver’s license, social security card or any agency requiring proof of name change.
