County Marriage License Information


I have listed requirements for Umatilla, Union and Wallowa Counties. These are the counties where I currently perform weddings. Requirements vary in all counties so be sure to contact the appropriate Auditor's Office for more information.

This information was taken directly from the Auditor's Office websites and placed here for your convenience. If you would like additional information, please contact your Auditor's Office.

WHERE CAN I GET A LICENSE:
The fee for your marriage license will only be accepted in cash at the offices listed below. Both the Bride and Groom are asked be present with Photo Identification (Drivers License or State I.D. Card). If this is not possible, ask your County Auditor if there are other arrangements that can be made.

WHAT AGE DO I HAVE TO BE:
Both parties must be 18 years of age or older. If a person under 17 wishes to marry, they must have a parent or legal custodian present with the applicant and provide their consent and proof of age. Some counties require additional steps be taken for underage marriages, please contact the County Auditor.

WHAT INFORMATION SHOULD I TAKE:
Before going to the Auditor or Recorder's Office, please gather the following information for both the bride and groom:

Social Security Number/Card
Date of Birth and Place of Birth
Mother's Maiden Name and State of Mother's Birth
Father's Name and State of Father's Birth
Your full legal address

WHO CAN BE MY WITNESSES:
Your witnesses should be at least 18 years of age. Although some counties permit persons under the age of 18 to be a witness, the persons you use as witnesses should understand they are witnessing a civil contract.

MUST I LIVE IN THE STATE:
There are no residency requirements to obtain an Oregon or Washington state marriage license. However, the marriage ceremony must take place in the state in which is was issued.

HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN GET MARRIED:
The 3-day waiting period imposed by the state cannot be waived. Your license must be used within 63 days of the date you obtain it or it becomes invalid and you must reapply. Your marriage license is valid anywhere in the state of Washington.

DO I REALLY NEED A CEREMONY:
The only mandatory purpose of the wedding ceremony is for the bride and groom to each declare, in front of two witnesses and their officiant, that they intend to be married.

Contact information for other counties in Oregon.
