The county clerk can't find my marriage license!
You've gotten married and now you need to get the legal copy of your marriage license, seems easy enough, but with today's mail delays it's causing a bit of a headache.
I've heard from the local county clerk's office that they used to receive marriage license's back in about 2 weeks but now it can be double - 4 weeks!
What's to do? wait it out, sadly there is not much we can do with Covid, we are only allowed to mail things in, some counties are setting in person appointments, however it is my legal responsibility to return your marriage license and the county clerk's office asks that I simply mail them in.
So, I will be advising couples going forward to wait at least 3 weeks maybe 4 before they can bet their legal copy of the marriage license.
I will also be offering to send your license back priority mail so you can have a tracking number. The addition fee is $10 to do this.
Rest assured, you are married and it's just taking a bit longer to get that legal copy of your marriage license.
Love stories are my passion
