Harla Friesz, Marion County recorder of deeds, is pleased to announce that effective immediately, couples may fill out their marriage license application online prior to coming to the Recorder’s Office to receive their license.
This will allow the applicants to fill in the information at their leisure, and will speed up the process at the Recorder’s Office.
Once the application is completed and submitted, the couple will come in together between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday. They will each need their driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID.
They will review their application, sign it and leave with their license. It is important to note the ceremony must take place in Missouri, and the license expires in 30 days.
Applicants wishing to use this service will go to marioncountymo.com; click on departments; select Recorder of Deeds; on the page, in the first paragraph (what the office does), click on the “marriage license” shortcut, and that will take you to the on-line application.
After submission, any errors can be corrected by the staff prior to printing the license. This site may also be used to search for prior marriage licenses, which are available from 1827 forward.
There is a cost of the license, which includes a certified copy issued after the original license is received by the Recorder’s Office after the wedding. Personal checks are not accepted; please bring cash or, in the alternative, you may use a debit or credit card, and the bank will charge a service fee in addition to the cost of the license.
