Marriage Licenses

  • Both parties are required to come to the Goochland County Clerk’s Office to apply for a marriage license.
  • Both parties shall be 18 years of age or older, unless a minor has been emancipated by court order.
  • The marriage license can be completed at home by printing the application at the bottom of the page and bringing into the office.  
  • The fee for the license is $30.00.
  • Government-issued photo identification will be required for both parties. If you are not a U.S. Citizen, two forms of identification are required and MUST be properly translated into English with a notarized signature.
  • The marriage license is good for 60 days.

If a certified copy is needed of the marriage license once it is received back in the Clerk’s Office, it can be requested in writing with a self-addressed stamped envelope or someone can come into the Clerk’s office to receive one. The cost for each certified copy is $2.50. The certified copy can be taken to any Social Security location in the Commonwealth to obtain a name change.
