  • Please indicate whether or not this is for a name change with the Social Security Administration.
  • For certified copies of marriage licenses in paper format with a raised seal, include a money order payable to the Clerk of the Court for $30.50, along with a business-size, self-addressed stamped envelope (or a money order for $37.50 for postage and handling instead of a business-size, self-addressed stamped envelope). The money order must include the customer name, address, and phone # of the customer on the front.
  • There is no postage or handling fee for electronically transmitted documents.

Your request will be processed within 7 to 10 business days; mail delivery time will depend on the postal service. You may also request marriage license copies using the online request form

Divorce Decrees

Please indicate whether you require just the divorce decree or if you require the property settlement or custody agreement as well, and whether or not this is for a name change with the Social Security Administration.

Once the appropriate fees have been assessed, you will be sent via mail, or e-mail if provided, a fee statement specific to your request. The Clerk's Office accepts payment in the form of a money order made payable to the Clerk of the Court with the name, address, and phone # of the customer on the front, or by debit card or credit card (MasterCard, Visa or American Express). To make payment by credit card, call (602) 37-CLERK, or (602) 372-5375.

Copy fees are $0.50 per page. In addition, there is a $30.00 charge to certify any document. If you are using the copy for legal or official purposes, a certified copy may be required. Please contact the agency you are providing the copy to in order to determine if they require a certified copy. Depending on the research required to fulfill your request, research fees may be applied. There will also be at least a $7.00 postage and handling fee applied if mailing the requested documents. There is no postage or handling fee for electronically transmitted documents.

Your request will be processed within 7 to 10 business days; mail delivery time will depend on the postal service.
