    Marriage License Details

    ( Posted on: December 30 )

    Since a Texas marriage license is valid for only 30 days from its purchase date, applicants should apply one to two weeks before the scheduled date of their marriage. Your marriage license can be obtained at any county courthouse throughout the state.


    REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN YOUR TEXAS MARRIAGE LICENSE

    • All applicants must provide proof of age and identity with a valid Texas drivers license, valid Texas DPS I.D., Military I.D., passport, or any certificate of License issued by this state, another state, the U.S. government or a foreign government.
    • Each applicant is required to provide a Social Security card or proof of social security number.
    • The cost is $66 cash (no checks) and $6 in Bexar County if couples bring in the "Twogether in Texas" certificate (www.twogetherintexas.com) . Prices may vary in different counties.
    • The legal age to obtain a marriage license without parental consent in Texas is 18 years of age. Application of age is 16 with parental consent.
    • No blood test is required.
    • If either applicant has been recently divorced, the state requires a 30-day waiting period from the date of the filed divorce decree, unless waived by the court. Female applicants are required to submit a certified copy of final decree showing their restored maiden name if different from current identification.\
    • The license is good for 30 days from the date of purchase. However, there is a 72-hour waiting period from the time the license was purchased until the time the ceremony can be performed.
