MARRIAGE LICENSE INFORMATION
New Marriage License Applications
To be married in the State of Indiana a couple must have a marriage license. The applicants who wish to be married must apply in person in the Clerk's Office and bring with them the required documents. For Indiana residents, at least one applicant must reside in Clark County and provide documentation of residency. Out-of-state residents may apply for a license in Clark County only if the marriage ceremony is being performed in Clark County.
If you wish to be married by the Clerk at the courthouse, an appointment must be made in advance. Please call the Clerk's office for an appointment.
- Clark County Residents $25 + $4 document fee = $29
- Out of State Residents $65 + $4 document fee = $69
