How Much Does a Marriage License Cost?

The cost of the marriage license varies from state to state and can even vary within a state. In many states, it is up to the specific marriage license issuance office to determine how much to charge. This figure is based on a number of criteria from cost of living, to the town or county's population.

The table below shows the approximate cost of a marriage license issued in that state.

Please note that these numbers may not reflect the actual marriage license cost. For the exact cost of a marriage license in any specific county, city, or town, you will need to contact that office.
