Marriage Licenses

Persons must be at least 18 years of age to apply for a marriage license. If either person is age 16 or 17, both parents of this person must sign the marriage application. If the parents are divorced, the custodial parent must produce legal custody documents at the time of application.

Marriage Application

Marriage Applications may now be submitted online. After online submission, both applicants are still required to appear at the Hall County Probate Court to sign the application. Please read the instructions before logging in to understand the process.
