Questions asked when applying for a marriage license include the following information about both individuals: full name, maiden name (if different), birthdate, birthplace (state or foreign country), social security number, occupation/job title, education/college, sex (m/f/x) & address.
We also ask the following questions about the individuals’ parents: full names, mothers' maiden name, label (father/mother/parent), birthplace (state or foreign country only), residence (state only) & occupation/job title/retired.
If either party has been married and divorced/widowed, the divorce decree or death certificate must be provided. The whole process takes about 20 to 30 minutes.There is a three-day waiting period before the license is issued, but it is good for 60 days once issued (anywhere in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania). Example if you apply on Monday then Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday would be your three-day wait and you can pick up license on Friday. Weekend days do counts towards your three- day wait.
