Purchasing Your California Marriage License? The Important Little Fees That Add Up!
In 2014 what about “all things” wedding ceremony, marriage license and name change? Let’s look at one first Marriage License Fee Change For This Year!
How Much Does It Cost To Obtain An Official Copy of My 2014 Marriage License? Its official… the cost per “Certified Copy” of a Marriage License is $15.00. With the average last name changing couple needing about 5 certified copies, this may be a pricey investment. As a Celebrity Wedding Officiator in Southern California, I can recall more than one marrying couple requesting about 15 certified copies for financial, medical and other verification purposes. I also know of couples, who, when requesting “Certified Copies” of their marriage license record, did so with out dated forms. Also, accompanying the requested form, was the last year’s related fees. Of course, this resulted in return of the request and delay in name change notification paperwork. – Certified Copies of the Marriage License are mandatory proofs in last name change due to marriage.
State Marriage Fees Verses County Marriage Related Fees
The State of California’s marriage license fee changes are separate and distinct from each California County’s related service fees. The fee hikes from the state, usually begin on January 1st of each year. But, the county related marriage fee hikes occur somewhere between January and March of each year.
A wedding officiator should know about “things official”, but most don’t take the time to learn or be informative. Why? Because many southland wedding officiators didn’t go to university to become career ceremony presenters. They shortcut all of the important education and practice that legitimizes and perfects their craft. Also, they often do not have the inclination to advance through education.This means that you are hiring a wedding officiator that knows less than you! One who is only officiating for pocket change or until they get the big break in another field. TCN is the only professional wedding officiator group in the area with degrees in the field, and thousands of weddings presided. This means you will be well informed about the “official things” !
