I’m sorry to hear that you are getting the run-around regarding your marriage license.  I live in Southern Cali and did not have any problems whatsoever.  Instead of sending a check to get my marriage license, I went directly to the County Clerk’s Office to get my license, took less than 10 minutes to get mine, including wait time.  You will have to go to the county office that represent the city that you were married in, sounds like that’s where the problem is. At least if you are there in person, there should be some one there to help you out.  

Good luck!

I went to the county clerk to get mine.  I think if you mailed the request in there was an extra fee.

We filled out our application online and then went in to pick it up.  We did a civil ceremony at the same time we picked it up and it took less then 25 minutes including the ceremony.  Orange County requires you to both be there in person to pick up the license anyway, but it was no hassle at all.

@Jaynee:  Ah… you are talking about the marriage *certificate*.  I think most of us were thinking you were talking about the license which is what you get *prior* to the wedding.  Since we had a civil ceremony, we applied for the certificate at the office that day.  We came in to pick it up at the same office about a week and a 1/2 later.  I’d go ahead and go in and see what’s going on.  Or call.

We got the marriage license and certified copy in the same building.
