How long are licenses good for & where does the record reside
After the ceremony you will receive the Marriage Certificate. The person performing the marriage is responsible for returning the Marriage License to the Clerk/Auditor's office within two weeks of the marriage. After the Marriage License is returned to the office, a certified copy will be mailed to you in the envelope you address in our office. The certified copy of your Marriage License is your official proof of marriage.
The Social Security office and the Drivers License Division will want to see the certified copy of the Marriage License for any last name changes. The Social Security office and the Drivers License Division are the two main places but you may need to go to banks, insurance companies, passport office, etc... Most people will just need to see the certified copy, but they generally do not need to keep the copy.
If you do need a certified copy in the future, we will always file the original Marriage License in our office. Certified copies are $5.00 for each copy.
