Marriage License and Civil/Commitment Ceremony - Online Reservations

The San Francisco Office of the County Clerk is delighted to welcome you back into City Hall and to our offices.

Beginning June 7, 2021, our office hours will be as follows:

Monday through Friday
8:00 am to 1:00 pm

City ID appointments start on June 1, 2021
Marriage License appointments start on June 7, 2021
Civil Marriage Ceremonies start on June 9, 2021

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, all mail and online orders are experiencing processing delays of 4-6 weeks. Please plan accordingly and we thank you for your patience.

 

Please arrive prepared for your Marriage License appointment with the following:

  • Valid, authentic, legal photo identification for each person.
  • A completed public or confidential marriage application.
  • If either/both parties were previously married or a State Registered Domestic Partner (SRDP), a certified copy of divorce, annulment, termination, or death record must be presented at the time of your marriage license reservation if it ended within the past 90 days of your marriage license reservation date.

Please 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.

Please Note: Documents in a foreign language must be translated into English by a Court certified translator or American Translators Association (ATA) certified translator.

 

Please arrive prepared for your Civil Ceremony appointment with the following:

  • Valid, authentic, legal photo identification for each person
  • A valid, unexpired, marriage license issued by a California County.
  • One witness if you are presenting a public marriage license.
  • No witness is required if presenting a confidential marriage license.
