Obtaining a Marriage License
Wyoming marriage licenses can only be used in the state of Wyoming and will expire one year from the date of issuance. There is no waiting period or residency requirement to obtain a license.
Applicants must be 18 years of age or older or meet the requirement for the rights to contract under W.S. 14-1-102 or have received a declaration of emancipation pursuant to W.S. 14-1-203. Applicants who are 16 or 17 must have written consent of a guardian and a competent witness, and a Wyoming court order. No person shall marry who is under the age of 16 years.
