How do I get a marriage license?

Marriage licenses will be issued by appointment only.A marriage license is valid for 90 days. There are no citizenship or residency requirements, nor are blood tests required to obtain a marriage license. Applicants must be over 18 years old. There are absolutely no refunds for expired marriage licenses or if you have a change of plans. Couples must complete their marriage license application and make an appointment online prior visiting the County of Orange Clerk-Recorder’s Office.
