Same-sex marriage license applications available July 17

Posted: July 16, 2013 - 4:23pm

Crow Wing County Auditor-Treasurer, Laureen Borden, announced that marriage license applications may be made by same-sex couples beginning Wednesday, July 17.  Licenses will not be valid for use until Aug. 1 as per Minnesota statute. Both parties must appear in person to submit an application with specific information required by statute - including identifying information, information about a previous marriage and any requested name change.

Cost of a marriage license is $115 unless the couple has completed twelve hours of premarital counseling prior to application and presents a certificate of completion at the time of application.  The cost is then reduced to $40.

Licenses may be obtained in any county in the state to be used anywhere in the state.  The Auditor-Treasurer’s Office is located on the second floor of the historic courthouse, 326 Laurel St.  Call 218-824-1045 with any questions.
