Getting married in Arkansas

IMPORTANT NOTE: Marriage laws and license requirements change continually, so please check the latest information with your local marriage license bureau office or county clerk's office before making your wedding or travel plans, and before inviting your guests.

NOTE: Requirements may vary as each county in Arkansas could have their own requirements.

Who may apply for a marriage license

You do not have to be a resident of Arkansas.

Parental consent is needed if under 18 years of age. You need to present a state certified copy of your birth certificate, an active Military ID card, or a valid passport. Your parent must be present to sign the marriage book with the applicants when the license is issued. If a parent is unable to sign, due to death, separation, divorce or other circumstances, you must produce certified papers for verification of those circumstances. Males under the age of 17 and females under 16 cannot marry without an Arkansas court order. This is usually given only in extreme circumstances, such as if the female is pregnant or the couple already has a child together.

Cousin marriages are not permitted in Arkansas.

ID requirements

If you are between 18 - 21, you must provide identification in the form of state certified copy of your birth certificates, an active Military ID card, or a valid passport. Both applicants need to be present. A valid driver's license will suffice if you are over 21.

Previous marriages

If you were previously married, you will need to show your divorce decree, or have information regarding date, county and state of death of previous spouse. If you name has changed, you need to bring a certified copy of your divorce decree.

Blood tests and other tests

No blood or medical tests required to get married in Arkansas.

Marriage ceremonies and witnesses

The marriage license can be used anywhere in Arkansas. Witnesses are not required at a wedding in Arkansas.

Officiants

Ministers must have their credentials recorded in one of Arkansas' 75 counties.

Fees

$35 - $47 approximately, cash only. May vary from county to county.

Waiting period

Arkansas does not have a waiting period.

Validity of license

An Arkansas marriage license is valid for sixty (60) days. It must be returned used or unused, within 60 days to the County Clerk's Office where you applied for recording or a $100 Bond will be executed against all applicants.

Covenant marriages

The covenant marriage option is valid in Arkansas.
