Applying for a Marriage License Just Got Easier


For decades the process of applying for a marriage license has been the same. Fill out the license application form at the Orange County Clerk’s Office. Or perhaps you downloaded the form and completed it at home (and remembered to bring it with you). Either way you then would present the form to a deputy clerk at the front counter and then watch the clerk re-enter the same information in the computer.

Welcome to eMarriage

Engaged and getting married? You can now begin the marriage license application process from the comfort of your own home at the Orange County Clerk’s Office new eMarriage website.

At eMarriage couples are able to fill out their marriage license application form online and directly submit it to the Clerk’s Office once it is complete.

“Getting married is a very happy time for many, but it can also be a very a busy and stressful time,” said Orange County Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell. “Therefore, we wanted to make the marriage license application process easier and more convenient for our customers.”

Important Note:

The on-line application is not an actual marriage license. The first step in the process is to fill out a marriage license application form. Couples are then required by law to appear in person, with the required documentation, to complete the application process within 60 days from the date in which they submit their application online.
