The State of Virginia has its own set of laws and regulations regarding application for a marriage license. It’s a good idea to begin this process a month or so before your planned wedding date just in case.

In the state of Virginia, marriage licenses are issued by the Clerk of the Circuit Court in the city or county where either the bride or groom lives. You don’t need to be a resident of Virginia in order to apply for a license with any Circuit Court Clerk.

You will be required to present valid identification such as a driver’s license, military ID, state ID, or passport and a certified copy of your birth certificate, and both of you must be present. You will need the full names of both parents, including both mothers’ maiden names. (If you have been married previously, some Virginia counties may require documentation to prove it has been dissolved through death or divorce.)

Marriage licenses are legal documents; make sure your names are spelled correctly.

Virginia does not require a blood test or physical examination to obtain your marriage license, but the license itself must be paid for in cash; the cost is $30-$40 average; (no checks accepted).

Once you have received your license, there is no waiting period, and no witnesses are required. Once issued, the license is valid for 60 days.

A wedding officiant in Virginia is any ordained minister who can show proof of ordination.  Marriage Commissioners and Judges (Circuit Court, District Court, or retired) can perform civil wedding ceremonies.

Two copies of the marriage license are issued, to be signed,  completed, and returned to the issuing Circuit Court by the wedding officiant within 5 days of the wedding.


A WEDDING CEREMONY JUST FOR YOU
