Office of County Clerk/Register of Deeds

Apply for Marriage License

Marriage License applications are available at the Kalamazoo County Clerk's office and online.

You apply for the license at the Clerk’s Office in the county where one of the applicants resides. The license can then be used anywhere in the State of Michigan.

Out-of-state applicants must apply in the county where the marriage ceremony will take place.

There is a required 3-day waiting period after submitting an application and before the license can be picked up. The license expires 33 days from the application date.
