In a Hurry? Save Time With Online Applications
If it weren’t already stress free enough, Las Vegas has made it even more simple to get married in Las Vegas! The Marriage License Bureau has created a convenient website process for you to utilize before picking up the marriage license.
For a seamless process, we recommend you fill out your marriage application online. This way, you will not need to waste time at the courthouse waiting for an available computer they have in the lobby to fill out the application. There’s no queue for your own computer, so it is far more efficient to fill out this application beforehand in order to expedite your process.
If you are obtaining a marriage license following a divorce, annulment, or widowhood, you will need to have the date of the final decree, as well as the city and state where the decree was granted. If you are in the final stages of divorce, you will not be allowed to obtain a marriage license until the final decree is pronounced.
Ordering Your Proof of Marriage
After your ceremony, your minister has 10 days to file your marriage license with the Clark County Recorder’s Office. After those 10 days, you are able to use the Clark County Recorder’s Office website to order the proof of marriage. Normally, the license will be available for order soon after it has been recorded.
The Certified Copy (Proof of Marriage) will be sent by standard mail through the US Post Office. Shipping domestically may take up to 7-10 business days until you receive your order, and up to 6 weeks for international shipping.
You are able to order the license in person as well at the following address: 200 Lewis Avenue, 5th Floor Las Vegas, NV 89101.
Get Your Proof of Marriage Faster
Can’t wait for your proof of marriage? The Little Vegas Chapel offers an Expedited License Processing service which includes the Certified Copy of Marriage License. This service allows us to file your marriage license 1 business day after your ceremony (Friday and Saturday licenses will be filed on the following Monday). Your proof of marriage will be available for pick up at our chapel the next business day by 5pm!
If you are unable to pick up the license the following business day, we would be happy to ship your proof of marriage to you as well. For priority mail shipping in the United States, it is just an additional $20. Please contact us at 702-385-5683 for international shipping rates.
