    We are getting a lot of questions about how to record the marriage certificates since the courthouse is closed. We have typed up some information that would answer those questions.

    NEW MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE INFORMATION

    Effective August 29, 2019, the process for entering into a legal marriage in Alabama changes, pursuant to Alabama Act 2019-340. Under the new law, persons wishing to become married are no longer required to file an application for a marriage license with the county probate court, and the courts will no longer issue marriage licenses. The Alabama Marriage Certificate form should now be completed by the persons entering into marriage and delivered to the probate court for recording. Once properly completed and recorded by the probate court, the marriage is legal. A wedding ceremony may be performed, but a ceremony is no longer required for a recognized marriage in Alabama.
