Posted on February 2, 2012 at 5:39 PM Comments comments (166)
I receive a number of inquiries from High Desert couples
about where to go to apply for a Marriage License. 
High Desert residents may apply for their Marriage License
at the High Desert Government Center.
 
Their address is:

Save yourself some aggravation and
call for an appointment.
Sometimes there is a long wait or they
will just tell you to make an

Or you can go to the

There are 2 types of Marriage Licenses
 
1.  Regular Public License --$89
     *  Open to the public
     *  May be uses anywhere in State of California
     *  One witness required
 
2.  Confidential License--$90

3-4 weeks after the Wedding Ceremony, you can obtain a copy

There is a fee of $14 to obtain a copy plus a $4 processing fee.
 
You will need a copy to take to the DMV to change your Driver's license and to update your Social Security Information.
 
Hope this helps!  If not, give me a call or send me an e-mail.
 
Good luck!
