Marriage License Laws

A couple, age 18 and older, wishing to get married in the Commonwealth of Virginia must obtain a marriage license. Every license for marriage is issued by the Clerk or deputy clerk of a circuit court of any county or city. The license is $30 and most Circuit Courts only accept cash. The license must be used within 60 days of issue date.

After obtaining the license, the couple, to be legally married, must go before someone officially authorized to perform religious or civil marriage ceremonies. After the ceremony is performed, the person performing the marriage has certain legal duties in completing the marriage license and returning it to the issuing Clerk, who, in turn has the legal responsibilities as to recording the license and providing a copy to the Registrar of Vital Statistics.
