Couples wishing to marry in Texas must first obtain a valid Texas marriage license from the office of the County Clerk. You may obtain your license from any Texas County. The Bexar County Clerk's office is open Monday through Friday 8:00am - 5:00pm and is located at 100 Dolorosa Suite #104 San Antonio, Texas 78205 Office: (210) 335-2216 Fax: (210) 335-2197.

A marriage license is valid only for a period of 30 days from the date of purchase. There is a mandatory waiting period of 72 hours from the time a marriage license is purchased until the time the wedding ceremony can legally be performed. Make sure to purchase your marriage license a minimum of 3 days prior to your wedding date, and no sooner than 30 days prior to your wedding date. Under certain situations you can apply for exemption from the mandatory 72 hour waiting period, however this must be by signed order of the Judge. 

Waiting Period: Marriage licenses have a 72 hour waiting period -- unless waived due to active duty military status.

Please Note: As of September 1995 Texas Law requires that a notorized statement pertaining to child support be submitted by all marriage license applicants. This form may be obtained at the same time you apply for your marriage license. It must be signed and completed in the presence of two witnesses and a notary public. No applications can be processed without the proper submission of this statement.
