You are responsible for obtaining your marriage license and bringing it to the ceremony.
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 $83 fee. Be sure to get in touch with the Court of Clerk’s office before you go for what payment method they accept, their hours, etc. 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.
