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.
A Marriage License Kiosk is now available for our customers to enter the marriage license application information on their own. It is located upstairs in the civil department.
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.
