A marriage certificate has to be filed with in 2 years of the ceremony to make the marriage legal. If it has been longer than 2 years then the marriage is not legally recognized by the courts.

If one never returns marriage certificate to the circuit court in Nevada after the ceremony is the marriage legal?

No, the marriage license has to be solemnized. Within 90 days after the marriage ceremony, the person solemnizing the marriage must complete the marriage certificate issued with the marriage license and return it to the office of the issuing Recorder. Lack of witnesses does not render a marriage invalid. However, two witnesses can submit an affidavit that the marriage ceremony took place if the certificate is lost or destroyed and the person who solemnized the marriage is unavailable.

What should you do if you did not turn in a marriage license and it was thrown away over a year ago?

You Should Be Able To Get A Copy From The Clerks Office In State And County Of Marriage. Call They Will Tell You The Person To See. * A marriage license is not "turned in", either the couple are married or the license expires and is no longer valid. A license that was issued more than a year ago would by now have expired if the marriage never took place. A marriage license is not proof of a valid marriage. The document that verifies a legal marriage is the marriage certificate which is signed by the person who performs the ceremony (minister, judge, JP, etc.)and filed with the vital records division in the state where the marriage takes place. Likewise, a copy of the certificate can be obtained from the state's division of vital records in the state where the marriage was performed.

Are you married if you got the marriage license but never signed and filed it with the state?

No. Not legally. If the couple received a valid license to be married and did so, they are legally married. The license would have had to be signed at the time it was received at the clerk's office, and would only have been issued if the proper indentification and requirements were met. The married couple is not required to file their own proof of marriage. The legal validation of the union is finalized by the judge, minister or whomever performs the ceremony issuing of the marriage certificate. A marriage license is NOT acceptable proof of a legal marriage.

What if you obtained a marriage license but never had a ceremony and never had it officiated Do you have to get divorced or annulment or will the license expire on its expiration date in California?

If you obtained a California marriage license but did not have it solemnized--that is, you did not have a ceremony and the officiant did not sign the license--you are not legally married and will not need to divorce. California marriage licenses expire 90 days after issuance (meaning you must have your ceremony within those 90 days); if your license expires before you have a ceremony, you must purchase a new license if you want to try again. Our County Clerk here in Los Angeles prefers unused licenses to be returned to the County offices in Norwalk, but you will not receive a refund--it's just for tracking purposes. Hope that helps!

Are you legally married if the marriage license was not sent in?

United StatesNo. The return of the license signed by the official who performed the ceremony creates the record and proof the marriage took place and was legal.

Is it possible that you were never legally married if you cannot find a copy of your marriage license on file in any county?

The marriage license in itself does not certify that a legal union has taken place. The marriage certificate signed by the person who is authorized to perform marriages is proof of a legal marriage. A copy of the marriage certificate is given to the couple after the marriage ceremony, then the marriage license/cerificate is (or should be) filed by the person who performed the wedding with the state's vital statistics bureau. Confirmation of legal marriages are filed with the state bureau of vital statistics and in copies should be available from the city or county where the marriage occurred. If the city or county cannot find the document the interested party should contact the bureau of vital statistics at the state capital. The absence of the document does not necessarily mean the marriage is not legally valid, although it may create some difficulty when engaging in certain transactions such as Social Security benefits.


What to do if you never filed your marriage licenses?
