There is a statutory five-day waiting period, exclusive of the day of application, and the license will be issued on the 6th day. As a general rule, applicants should apply no less than 7 days before and no more than 35 days before the ceremony. The County Clerk’s Office suggests application for a marriage license be made two-three weeks prior to the ceremony. In some instances, a waiver of the waiting period may be granted at the discretion of the County Clerk, due to unusual circumstances. The cost of the waiver is $25.00 and must be approved by the County Clerk before applying for your marriage license. Waivers will not be granted to anyone under the age of 18.
