Marriage Licenses

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.

Alternatively, due to the ongoing concern of exposure to COVID-19, the Clerk’s Office will continue to accept marriage license applications by mail.

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