Everything You Need to Know About Marriage Licenses


A marriage license is the legal document issued by your county clerk’s office that will be filed by your minister or officiant after your wedding ceremony to ensure that you are legally married.  After it is filed, a certified marriage certificate will be issued by the clerks office and mailed to you.  That document is your legal proof of marriage.  That seems straightforward doesn’t it?
