Marriage License and Civil/Commitment Ceremony - Online Reservations
With this system you can:
No-Refund Policy – Please make sure you make your reservation selection very carefully as there will be ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS issued once the reservation has been made. Note: If you are also having your ceremony at City Hall, be sure to check both marriage license and marriage ceremony calendars first and schedule your ceremony appointment first as there are less ceremony appointments as there are marriage license appointments.
Rescheduling Policy – We recognize that situations may arise, which may prevent you from making an existing appointment; therefore, you will be allowed to reschedule 1 time only by submitting a request to our office at least 3 business days prior to your existing appointment. This will allow other members of the public to have an opportunity of taking the slot you are vacating and will allow our office to schedule staff accordingly. Go to our reservation site by selecting "Book Now" at the bottom of this page to verify the new date/time you are requesting is available prior to submitting the request to our office. On the request, include both parties’ names as well as the date and time of the original appointment along with the new date and time you wish to reserve. You will then either receive a new confirmation notification reflecting the new reservation or get a call from one of our staff members letting you know that the new time and date requested is no longer available and work with you on a new selection.
Please Note: If you are unable to make an online reservation or need assistance with making an reservation, you may make your reservation in person at our office Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The Office of the County Clerk accepts cash, debit card, credit card, personal check preprinted with account holder's name (from U.S. bank), money order or cashier's check payable to SF County Clerk.
Note: The “certified” copy must have an original court seal and a signature (or signature stamp) of the court clerk. It is the original seal and court clerk signature (certification) that make this a “certified” copy. The “CONFORMED / FILED / ENDORSED” stamp in the top right corner of the copy of the court order (usually issued by your attorney) is NOT the court clerk’s certification and will NOT be accepted.
Make an online reservation through our partnered online scheduler (outside of SFGov navigation):
IMPORTANT NOTE: IF YOU ARE MORE THAN 30 MINUTES LATE FOR YOUR CEREMOMY APPOINTMENT YOU MAY HAVE TO RESCHEDULE YOUR WEDDING. WE ABSOLUTELY MUST STAY ON SCHEDULE. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE READY TO GO WHEN YOU ARRIVE AND THAT YOUR GUESTS ARRIVE ON TIME.
