Requirements For Getting Married In Los Angeles

A Public Marriage License:

You do not need to be a resident of California or the United States to get married in Los Angeles.

Both partners must go together when applying for a marriage license.

Bring a government issued photo I.D. such as a passport or a driver’s license.

You do not have to wait to get married and a marriage license is valid for 90 days.

If you were married before, you must supply the date that marriage ended.

If you are divorced, you will need to know the exact date of when your divorce was finalized. If your divorce was finalized within the last 2 years, you will need to bring your divorce decree with you.

Blood tests are not required.

You must be at least 18 or have written consent of at least one parent (or legal guardian) and permission from a California superior court judge. Call 562-462-2137 for additional information.

The license fee varies by county and can be paid in cash, Master Card or Visa, California check or money order written out to the County Clerk. You will need one witness.

PLEASE NOTE: State and county marriage license requirements often change. The above information is for guidance only.
