Marriage License in Los Angeles County

Marriage Licenses

Our office provides marriage licenses to couples getting married in the near future and even performs civil ceremonies for a small fee.

Once a couple has obtained their marriage license and participated in a qualified ceremony, the marriage license becomes a marriage certificate that must be sent back to our office to be recorded.

Our office only records marriage certificates for marriage licenses that were obtained in Los Angeles County.

If you obtained your marriage license in another state or California county, then we will not record your marriage certificate, nor will have your marriage record on file.

The submitting of a marriage license application and/or purchasing of a marriage license DOES NOT constitute being legally married. You must participate in a civil or religious ceremony, after which the marriage license must be completed and returned for recording.

We Do Not Maintain Divorce Records

Our office does not maintain any divorce records or information. To obtain divorce record information, visit the Los Angeles Superior Court.
