It is $50 in Columbus, Ohio and $2.00 per certified abstract, which basically is the legal proof you are married. You need something certified by the court to say that the marriage took place to go to Social Security to change your name. I work in marriage licensing here and we usually tell people they will need anywhere from 2-5 certified copies. That’s because insurance, passport, banks, credit card companies and if you have a license for your job all need them.
In Ohio, the price is different for each county, as it is up to the Judge how much is charged.

I just checked our town’s website and it’s $40. I’m surprised it’s not more, considering Massachusetts likes to charge double for everything else…

$10 for the license and I got 5 copies for $5.

@Shosha1: If you go to Almonte, Smith Falls, or Kemptville, it’s only 100$! Rockland and Arnprior is 125$. That’s what I’m doing instead of getting it in-city. 157+tax is TOO MUCH!
Almonte you might have to wait a week though, so beware.

In my county it is $40. But in MD you have to get the license in the county you are getting married in. It is only a couple of dollars for the copies thereafter. I think it is 5 for the first copy and 2 for every copy thereafter. I could be wrong though.

Wow. I am shocked at these prices. I’m in Mass and paid $20. Certified copies are $10 each.

In Boone County in Missouri, it was $51 for the license and $9 for a certified copy.

Harrisburg, PA we paid $50, it is $6 for each certified copy. In PA you do not have to get your license in the county you are getting married in either =)

We are getting married in Ohio even though we live in WV so for out of towners it’s $50.
Had we gotten it in WV it would have been $35 but then I would have had to order a certified copy of my divorce decree which would have been another $25.
But, we are getting married in the same county that I got divorced in ( super Convenient lol) so they already have it on file so only $50 for us!

I believe our was $72 in Dallas county. Yes, Texas will give you a big discount if you undergo marriage prep courses that have been approved by the state, but after looking at how many hours that would take, in addition to the classes we already had with our own minister, we decided to just pay it!
