Requirements to Obtain a Marriage License


Fee - $52.00 cash only

Applicants must have a valid photo I.D. and apply together and in person.

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. If applicant is under the age of 18, they will need the consent of one parent. If they are under the age of 16 they will need to petition the Orphans’ Court for the judicial authorization to obtain a marriage license.

If the applicant was previously married and divorced, a certified copy of the final decree of divorce, must be presented for the latest marriage. If marriage was dissolved by death, you only need to provide the date of death.

There is a three (3) day waiting period before the license can be issued. A marriage license is valid for sixty (60) days from the date of issuance. If not used within the sixty (60) days it is void.

A marriage license issued in this county is valid anywhere in Pennsylvania, but the record will be kept only in Blair County.

Marriage applications are taken Monday – Friday - 8:00 am to 3:45 pm
