  • Marriage licenses will not be issued if one party is 21 years or older, and the other party is under 18 years old

All applicants for a marriage license must provide proof of age to the Recorder of Deeds in the form of a certified copy of a birth certificate, passport, or other government-issued identification, and that proof will be documented by the Recorder’s Office.
