Marriage Licenses

The Clerk's Office will be closed Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27, 2020 for the Thanksgiving holiday.  We will reopen on Monday, November 30 at 7:30 a.m.

Due to the ongoing concern of exposure to COVID-19, the Clerk’s Office will continue to accept marriage license applications by mail. If obtaining a marriage license in person, to protect the staff and the public, we strongly encourage those visiting the office to wear masks and to observe social distancing.    

Please note: Marriage licenses can only be issued for ceremonies performed within the State of Nebraska.
