The good news is that Arizona is a wedding friendly state. To obtain your Arizona marriage license, here are a few quick details:

  • No Arizona residency is required.
  • Couples must appear in person to obtain a license.
  • There is a $76 fee. Contact the Court of Clerk’s office before you go for what payment method they accept. Most take cash or check only.
  • The marriage license is valid for one year from the date of issue.
  • There is no waiting period after you obtain your license.
  • Marriage licenses are usually processed within 15-20 minutes.
  • Two witnesses (at least eighteen years of age) must “witness” the wedding and sign the marriage license after the ceremony.
