Congratulations on your decision to get married! Completing the process for your marriage license can be done in three easy steps:
$67.75 license fee is non-refundable and includes one certified copy as proof of marriage and/or for name changes.Accepted payment
No personal checks are accepted.
|You must meet these requirements in order to be considered eligible to apply for a marriage license. Blood tests and medical exams are not required.
Applicants cannot be first cousins or nearer kin.
A license can be issued one day after the final date of a divorce. If you were previously married, you’ll need the exact date of your divorce to complete the application.
Licenses may be obtained in any county in Oregon, and can only be used in the State of Oregon. No extensions of time or refunds of money are made once the license is issued.
There is a three-day waiting period from the day the license is purchased until it can be used.
Once the license is effective, it is valid for a 60-day period. (Please note: Judges do not perform weddings at either the Pendleton or Hermiston county facilities)
Once the marriage has taken place, and the completed marriage license is returned to the Umatilla County Records Department, an official certified copy of the license will be mailed automatically to the couple. Additional certified copies may be requested at the time the license is purchased at a cost of $4.00.
The certified document is considered the legal copy, and can be used by the applicants to change their name on items like a driver's license or social security card.
A decorative marriage certificate will be provided. This is not a legal document and may not be used as proof of marriage. If an issued license is lost or destroyed, it can be replaced at the Records office.
