Apply for a Marriage License
Marriage licenses are issued by county probate courts. Procedures for applications vary by county.
You can apply for a marriage license from your county probate court.
You must be at least 18 years old, of sound mind, and have no living spouse from a prior un-dissolved marriage in order to be issued a marriage license. A 17-year-old may be issued a marriage license if certain conditions are met.
If at least one of the people getting married is a resident of Georgia, a marriage license can be issued at a probate court in any county. If neither person is a resident of Georgia, the license must be issued in the county where the ceremony is taking place. Both parties must be present in order to obtain a marriage license.
You will need proof of age, proof of divorce (if applicable), and a method of payment when applying for a marriage license. The signed marriage license should be returned to the probate court within 30 days of the ceremony. You will then receive your marriage certificate in the mail within 30 days.
