What do I need to do to get a marriage license?

If you wish to apply for a marriage license in Williamson County both applicants should come to the basement of the Justice Center located at 405 MLK Street, Georgetown, TX. Our hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm.

We will need proper identification such as a drivers license or passport. We will also ask for social security numbers. Please refer to the fees document for the price of a marriage license. We prefer you bring cash with no bills over $20. No checks, please.

Once you purchase the license you have to wait 72 hours before you can marry unless either of you happen to be on active duty in the military. You have to get married within 90 days of the date that you purchased the license.

The law changed on September 1, 2017 to only allow those 18 years of age or older to be able get a license unless given permission by a District Judge.
