Requirements and Application
A marriage license may be issued by the County Clerk after the applicants provide the following required information:
Applicants must be 18 years of age and have legal proof of age: Valid drivers license, birth certificate, or passport.
Marriage by Minors
Applicants under the age of 18 years of age are required to have :
Licenses are valid for 30 days from date of issue and may be used anywhere within the State of Utah. The license remains the property of Utah County and must be returned to the County Clerk after the marriage is solemnized or not solemnized.
The person performing the ceremony will be responsible to complete the Marriage Certificate and the Marriage License.
After the ceremony you will receive the Marriage Certificate. The person performing the marriage is responsible for returning the Marriage License to the Clerk/Auditor's office within two weeks of the marriage. After the Marriage License is returned to the office, a certified copy will be mailed to you in the envelope you address in our office. The certified copy of your Marriage License is your official proof of marriage.
If the bride plans on changing her last name, the Social Security office and the Drivers License Division will want to see the certified copy of the Marriage License. The Social Security office and the Drivers License Division are the two main places but you may need to go to banks, insurance companies, passport office, etc... Most people will just need to see the certified copy, but they generally do not need to keep the copy.
If you do need a certified copy in the future, we will always file the original Marriage License in our office. Certified copies are $5.00 for each copy.
