3.- What is the validity of the marriage license?

The license does not have an expiration date.

 

4.- What are the requirements?

Both parties must be present in order to obtain a marriage license. Pre-marital blood test results are no longer required in the State of Georgia.

 

You must be at least 18 years of age with legal documents to prove your age. If you've been divorced, you may need a copy of your divorce decree.
