Are you both within the same county where you’ll be married? If so, it doesn’t matter which. Otherwise you have to go to the one whichever county clerk’s office you’re getting married in.

Most likely, if you are in the same state, and that is the state you are getting married in, you can go to either.  Laws very from state to state, so I would do a google search for state laws, and/or I would call  your county clerk.  They deal with this daily, so they likely know the rules.

I’m not sure how it is in your state, but in mine it doesn’t matter which county clerk you go to as long as it is in PA and you are getting married in PA.

It depends on your state. Some states require you get the license in the county you’re marrying in. Other states will let you get it anywhere as long as you marry in that particular state.

Here it doesn’t matter either, as long as you get the license in the state you are marrying in you should be fine.

 @oxstardust421xo: As all the PPs mention it varies state by state. Both here in IL and where I’m marrying in WI you have to go to the specific county.

We just got ours and on the state website it specifically says you can get the license at any courthouse, even if you’re not a resident in the county.

A quick google search brought me to this site, which states that you can get it from any clerk as long as you’re getting married in that state.

Usually you just need to stay in state.

I believe you go to the county where you are getting married, at least in my county.

Depends on the State…

Some States / Provinces / Countries issue one Marriage License State-wide … while others you have to have it issued by the Jurisdiction (county / city) you are being married in.

I’d use the link that @Duncan:  provided above in Reply # 13 to see the Requirements for NH
