  • I thought you had to go to town/city hall? Not sure if you can get one elsewhere though.

  • Any court house has forms you can fill out. Most courts have the info online depending on what county/city you're in. Come prepared with info on your next of kin and a form of identity, such as a driver's license or state-issued ID.

  • Usually it's the county courthouse but it could be different if you live in a big city. You can probably check online at your county website. We got married in a small town so we just went over to the courthouse and talked to the vital records clerk and he filled out the paperwork for us and we paid the $40 fee. Three days later we went back to pick up the license.

  • I think you go to city hall and they are good for up to a year before you have to get married. Some stated require a marriage counsel before you get a license
