I was wondering how long it took you ladies to receive your marriage certificate. When we went in to purchase our marriage license, I forgot to ask but purchased/requested two copies. Well I need my marriage certificate ASAP to get on my husband’s health insurance. I’m growing concerned that it will take 6-8 weeks to arrive and I don’t have that sort of time.
So if you live in one of the more populated counties, how long did it take to arrive in the mail?

@beekiss: It took our county’s office in Oakland about 4 weeks to turn around. But if you’re unsure, maybe you can call your county office?

Weird I live in Placer county and I had to physically go back and get a copy from them. I was able to like a week later though!

@ThinkingOutLoud: Here’s an update:
So today my Fiance called our Church and they couldn’t locate the copy of the paperwork they sent in to verify when they sent it in. I called the Alameda County Clerk-Recorder’s Office and they told me that my marriage license was recorded Dec. 3rd and to give them 10 business/working days for the certificate to arrive. Well it arrived today!! 🙂
