This is typically for couples marrying outside the United States of America.  This is a form certified by one of our clerks, stating that a person has never been issued a Marriage License in Hamilton County.  First, we gather information from the person.  Then, we look for that person in our records and verify they have never been issued a license from Hamilton County.


You can only have this form certified by applying in-person, with government issued photo ID (i.e., Driver's License, State ID, passport, VISA, etc.) . The fee is $5.00. Cash or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover only) are accepted.

In an attempt to make your visit to our office quicker and more efficient we have provided a PDF version that can be filled out, printed, and then brought to our office to assist when the clerk completes the form for certification.
