The moment is here–you’re finally ready to apply for your marriage license! Unfortunately, you have to trot down to the ultra-glamorous Probate Court of Chatham County (133 Montgomery St., Room 509), but these important details will help make your trip quick and painless:

  • Marriage licenses are issued between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • You must be at least 18 years old to apply without parental consent.
  • If you’ve been married before, you’ll need to present to the court your divorce decree.
  • All applicants must present a positive I.D. This can be either a driver’s license, a certified copy of a birth certificate, a military I.D., a passport, or a state I.D. card.
  • Both the bride and the groom must be present at the same time in order to apply for the marriage license.
  • The fee is $66, but you can reduce that fee to $26 if you have a notarized premarital education certificate.
  • You can pay in credit card, debit card, cash (exact change), money order or cashier’s check. Personal checks are not accepted.
  • There is no waiting period in Georgia; you will receive your license at the time you apply.
