Marriage Licenses

To obtain a marriage license, in general you must

  • provide photo ID
  • be over 18 years old
  • demographic information    *place of your birth                                                                                                                        *date of end of any prior marriages (if applicable)                                                              *names of parents at birth and their birthplaces                                                            

No blood tests or medical exams are needed!

Make sure you obtain a marriage license from the state where you will have your wedding ceremony!

  • A marriage license from one county in Oregon is good for any county in Oregon.
  • A marriage license from one county in Washington is good for any county in Washington.

There is a three-day waiting period for both states, which may be waived for a fee (fees vary).
