Public Marriage License

The Riverside County Clerk’s Office is issuing marriage licenses in-person at its public service offices. Appointments are recommended. You will find the requirements to obtain a license and the steps to book your appointment on this page.

To obtain a marriage license you must meet the following requirements:
  • Both parties MUST be 18 years of age or older. (We are not issuing licenses to minors at this time.)
  • Both parties MUST be present TOGETHER during their appointment to obtain the marriage license.
  • Both parties MUST have valid, current picture identification. The identification must be government-issued. Some examples include State-issued Driver's License or identification card; Military identification; Green Card; Naturalization Certificate; Passport.
  • If either party has been divorced or has had a dissolution of a State Registered Domestic Partnership within 90 days of the issuance of the marriage license, a copy of the FINAL Dissolution IS REQUIRED. We will take a copy of the register of actions showing the written final decree of dissolution has been entered. The divorce paperwork does not need to be certified. A copy of a Minute Order IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
  • Payment of fee for a public marriage license: $100.00.
