Getting married in Virginia? One thing you need to do is get a marriage license!
You and your fiance can secure a license through any Virginia Circuit Court Clerk, and they can be found by checking the list at www.courts.state.va.us. For getting married in Virginia, a license will cost $30 and be valid for 60 days. For more info, and to see sites and officiants, head to www.virginia.org.
As far as age goes, you both need to be 18, so make sure to take a certified copy of your birth certificate. If you happen to be under 18, you will need to take notarized consent from a legal guardian or parent along with you. Be sure to take an ID with you – a passport, driver’s license, military ID or state ID will do!
If you are wondering who can marry you, be sure get an ordained minister who can show proof of their ordination. You can also be married by a justice of the peace, judge or marriage commissioner.
Be sure to get a marriage license in time.
It’s vital, and many couples have forgotten! For the most up-to-date information on getting married in Virginia, please head to www.courts.state.va.us.
