CLERK’S OFFICE OFFERS TIPS FOR FASTER MARRIAGE LICENSE APPLICATIONS

            Couples looking to tie the knot this Valentine’s Day in Doña Ana County can save some time waiting in line with online marriage license applications, according to Doña Ana County Clerk Amanda López Askin.       
            According to Askin, the clerk’s office typically sees a spike in the number of marriage license applications processed on the year’s most romantic holiday.
           Couples who are interested in getting married on Thursday, Feb. 14, are advised to use the online application service to reduce their wait time and streamline the process for clerk’s office staff.  To access the form, visitors can go to www.donaanacounty.org/clerk. From there, click on the ‘Marriage License’ tab on the right and then follow the instructions for submitting a marriage application online.
           Once you have completed the steps, you can either print a confirmation or document the transaction number and bring all required materials to the Doña Ana County Clerk’s office at 845 N. Motel Boulevard. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and have a government-issued ID. The marriage license fee is $25, payable by cash, check or a major credit card. Applicants under 18 are required to bring a certified copy of their birth certificate and written consent of each living parent listed on the birth certificate.
