If you are a current resident of Lincoln County, or an out of state resident (who plans to get married in Lincoln County), this is what you would need to get a marriage license:

*State certified birth certificate for both bride and groom
*Proof of current residency - Photo ID, Utility Bill, or other mail where you lived for the last 30 days
*If married before - we will need you to bring in documentation on how last marriage ended (divorce papers, dealth certificate, etc.)
*Date of intended marriage, county where ceremony will take place, township or city within that county, name of person performing the ceremony, that person's mailing address, and phone number.

We will ask you the following:

*If you are blood related
*your race
*highest level of education you have completed
*phone number

We need both bride and groom to come in for the application process. Only one needs to return to pick up the completed license.

The price for the license is $90.00 (which is non-refundable) there is a 5 day waiting period. There is a $25.00 fee (which is non-refundable) to have the waiting period waived.

The license is only valid for 30 days once it is issued.

Payment can be made by check, cash, and debit or credit cards accepted.
