FAQs

What are the requirements to apply for a marriage license?

To obtain your marriage license, both parties must appear in person before a Clerk at a Clark County Marriage Bureau location.

  • Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, and no nearer of kin than second cousins or cousins of half-blood, and not having a husband or wife living.
  • Nevada marriage licenses are only valid within the State of Nevada. Marriage ceremonies must be conducted within Nevada's borders and may not be conducted within another state or country. It is recommended that ceremonies conducted in the air or water be restated, with witness, once back on Nevada soil.

All U.S. citizens are required to provide their Social Security Number (SSN) on the Affidavit of Application for a Marriage License. You do not need to present your Social Security Card.  Applicants not issued a Social Security Number by the United States will leave the appropriate field of the application blank.  

For non U.S. citizens, some foreign countries require a copy of the Marriage License and/or an apostille to register a marriage.  It is suggested that non U.S. citizens check with their local officials for special documents needed to ensure their marriage is recognized in their country.
