In Orange County, you can now begin the marriage license application process from the comfort of your own home at the Clerk’s Office new website under eMarriage Application in the Marriages section. The Orange County Clerk of Courts recently launched the new eMarriage Application to make wedding planning a little easier on couples when they apply for a marriage license.
Gone are the days of having to fill out the marriage license application form at the Orange County Clerk’s Office or having to remember to bring the completed form with you from home to present to a deputy clerk at a front counter, where the clerk would re-enter the same information in the computer. At eMarriage, couples are able to fill out their marriage license application form online and directly submit it to the Clerk’s Office once it is complete.
“Getting married is a very happy time for many, but it can also be a very a busy and stressful time,” said Orange County Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell. “Therefore, we wanted to make the marriage license application process easier and more convenient for our customers.”
Please note, that the application on-line is not an actual marriage license. The first step is to fill out a marriage license application form. Couples are then required by law to appear in person, with the required documentation, to complete the application process within 60 days from the date in which they submit their application online.
