We offer 30-minute, in-person appointments for couples who wish to obtain a marriage license. Effective January 4, 2022, due to staffing shortages related to the uptick in cases of COVID-19 and the limited appointment slots, we are prioritizing residents of Delaware County, PA.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment so we may check you in. Couples should begin the process of applying for their marriage license at least thirty (30) days in advance. We can never issue licenses more than sixty (60) days in advance or less than three (3) days before your wedding.
Please call our marriage licenses front desk at 610-891-4416 to make an appointment. If no team member is available to assist you when you call, please leave a message so we can return the call.
