Searching for marriage records in Georgia involves filling out an application, providing identification and paying for the record. As of 2014, marriage records cannot be requested online in Georgia, since signatures are required. While anyone can get a certified copy of a marriage license, only the bride and groom can get a certified copy of the application for a marriage license.
- Fill out the Marriage Record Request form
The application for a certified copy of a marriage license in Georgia asks for the bride and groom's name, the date of the marriage and the place of the marriage. The application must be signed by the requester.
- Provide identification
Anyone requesting a certified copy of a marriage license must provide a driver's license, passport, state identification card or employee identification card.
- Pay the fee
As of 2014, the first certified copy of a marriage license costs $15. Additional copies of the same license cost $5 each. Payment must be made by certified check or money order. Checks should be made out to Vital Records Services.
- Submit the application
Because a signature is required, you can submit applications by mail or in person only. Send the application, along with payment a copy of the identification card, to Vital Records, 2600 Skyland Drive, NE, Atlanta, GA 30319. Submit applications in person at the County Probate Court in the county where the marriage was recorded.
