Spanish Marriage License Requirements
Age – 18 and over
A minor the age of sixteen (16) or seventeen (17) years must provide a certified birth certificate from the state or country they were born in. Both parents if living who are shown on the minor's birth certificate must sign a written consent allowing the minor to apply for the marriage license. A written consent may be provided in person at the Clerk's Office, or if not in person, through a notarized statement. If one parent is deceased, a certified copy of the death certificate must be provided. A parent signing the consent form in person must present current photo identification that shows their name as matching their name on the birth certificate. Unless a parent is deceased, if one parent is unable or unwilling to sign the consent form, then the minor must obtain an authorization to marry from the district court and provide a certified copy of the court order authorizing marriage to the County Clerk for filing.
