NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO PERSONALLY DELIVER OR PICK UP ANY DOCUMENT.

This office does not require copies of dissolution papers, however, since the sworn application regarding your status as a single person is sufficient.
  • Prior to your ceremony, couples must appear together at the Clerk of Court to sign the application, which will be printed upon your arrival.
  • After signing the application before the Clerk of Court, payment of $53 will be required. Payment of the fee will be required in person and can be cash, check, money order, or credit card (additional $2.31 fee will be applied for credit card payments).
