Under 16, marriage is prohibited in this state except by court order from the Judge.

Divorce:
Persons divorced in Oklahoma may not marry anyone other than their previous spouse for a period of six months after the divorce decree is filed.

Blood Test:
Oklahoma law no longer requires a premarital blood test.

Residency:
No residency requirements. However, when applying for your marriage license you must do so no more than ten (10) days before the ceremony (unless the ceremony is with a Judge at the Court House).  The completed marriage license must be returned to the Court Clerk's Office within 5 days from the performance of marriage by minister.

Cost:
$50.00 license fee (cash or card, no checks) or $5.00 (cash or card, no checks) if premarital counseling is completed. The reduced fee shall apply upon presentation to the court clerk of an original certificate of successful completion of a premarital counseling program. The certificate must be an original document on letterhead, not a copy, and shall state that the named persons have successfully completed the premarital counseling requirements. If you have a judge’s ceremony you will need to pay an additional $10.00 cash fee for judge’s services.

NO COPIED, FAXED OR EMAILED CERTIFICATES QUALIFY.

To make an appointment with a judge, please call the judge’s secretary/bailiff (write down the name of the judge) to set an appointment. Give this information to the marriage license deputy clerk on arrival at the courthouse. Arrive at the courthouse at least 30 minutes before your appointment so we may issue the marriage license to you before you go before the judge to be married.

The premarital counseling program must be conducted in accordance with Oklahoma State 43 O.S. 5.1.

Waiting Period:
No waiting period required except for those under the age of 18. If under age 18, there is a 72 hour waiting period. You must apply for your license and come back after 72 hours to obtain the license.
