Just looking for some clarification here. Is it true that you never receive a physical copy of your marriage certificate after your officiant sends in your marriage license, and that you have to request to receive one? Seems stupid that I have to pay even more money, but then again, this is CA.

Yup. That’s true most places, though. It’s not just a CA thing. I believe we ordered and pre-paid for copies of it when we filled out the paperwork for our license.

that’s how it is in maryland. i needed to go to the records office and pay $12 to get a certified copy.

Ok, thanks. I guess I just assumed that once it was filed, they would automatically send the certificate. Wish they would have told us that when we went to get the license.
