Marriage Licenses
Obtaining a Marriage License
A marriage license can be obtained from the Churchill County Clerk/Treasurer's Office at 155 N. Taylor Street, Suite 110, in the County Administration Complex during regular business hours. The fee for a marriage license is $75 payable by cash, credit or debit (Mastercard or Visa) cards, money orders, or traveler's checks only.

There are no medical exams or blood tests required in order to apply for a marriage license, and there is no waiting period. A marriage license will be given at the time a bride and groom apply for it. The license will be valid for one year from the date it is issued, and it may be used anywhere within the State of Nevada. For more information on marriage certificates, please view information courtesy of the Recorder's Office.

Minimum Age
Both parties must be at least 18 years old. Any minor who is 16 or 17 years old may apply for a marriage license with parental or guardian consent. A minor needs the consent of at least one custodial parent or legal guardian. Identification of the minor and the consenting parent or guardian plus a certified copy of the child's birth certificate are required. If you are under 16, please call (775) 423-6028 for more information.

Photo IDs
Both parties must be present to apply for a marriage license and must bring a photo ID showing proof of age.

Previous Marriages
If either party were previously married, they will be required to provide the date, city, and state of the divorce. If either party was divorced within the last 30 days, we request a copy of your divorce decree.

Appointments are available for marriage ceremonies at the Justice of the Peace's office in Churchill County at (775) 423-2845.
