Marriage Licenses


  • Both applicants must be at least 17 years of age.  You cannot marry in Nebraska if you are under 17.

  • Parental consent required for applicants who are 17 or 18 years of age.  The Parental Consent form is available at the County Clerk's office.

  • One form of identification is required (i.e., drivers license or passport).

  • Birthplace of the applicants.

  • Full names and birthplaces of both parents.

  • Social Security Numbers for the applicants.  Applicants without a Social Security Number must complete a form provided by the Clerk asserting that they do not have a Social Security Number.

  • Applicants having a previous marriage must provide the date that marriage ended (i.e., date of divorce decree or date of death).

Please Note

  • No blood test is required.

  • Licenses are good for one year from date of issuance.  Therefore, applicants must be married within that year or they will need to apply again.

  • A couple may apply for their license in a Nebraska county and use it to be married in any other Nebraska county.
