Congratulations on your decision to get married! Completing the process for your marriage license can be done in three easy steps:
$62.00 license fee is non-refundable.
You must meet these requirements in order to be considered eligible to apply for a marriage license. Blood tests and medical exams are not required.
Applicants cannot be first cousins or nearer kin.
Licenses may be obtained in any county in Washington, and can only be used in the State of Washington. Applicants do not have to be residents of the State of Washington to obtain a marriage license. No extensions of time or refunds of money are made once the license is issued.
Once the marriage has taken place, and the completed marriage license is returned to the County Auditor, a certified copy will be mailed to you (one copy included with the license fee). An additional official certified copy of the license can be obtained from the County Auditor for $3.00.
A decorative marriage certificate will be provided. This is not a legal document and may not be used as proof of marriage. If an issued license is lost or destroyed, it can be replaced at the County Auditor’s office.
