Are Your Online Ordinations Valid In My State?
Yes. Exempting Virginia, our ordinations are valid in every State and US Territory. As an AMM Minister, you can perform a wedding anywhere in the United States as long as you are in compliance with local minister regulations.
Whether or not there are any steps after getting ordained depends on the state where the ceremony is taking place. In most states, you can perform marriage as soon as you are ordained, but it is important to know that some states require ministers to first register with their local government office.
Regarding Virginia, we are currently pursuing legal action to secure our ministers right to perform marriage in the Commonwealth. Because you may encounter problems registering as a wedding officiant in Virginia, we offer our Virginia Minister Ordination Package for free to our ministers who are contemplating performing marriage in Virginia.
