Hi, I’m new to this site so I hope this is an okay section to write this in. I couldn’t find one for legal issues.
I recently got engaged to a sailor who is still in training in Charleston, SC. I researched marriage license requirements for Santa Clara, CA and I found out that both of us have to be there to get a license. I called and they said the only exception was if he was deployed and that being in training didn’t count. He might not be able to get here until the night of the rehearsal dinner. Does anyone know of a loophole for military licensing requirements?

We had the same problem in Missouri and we got our license 2 days before the wedding. He was deployed at the time and the lady told us we still couldn’t get it!!!!
Good luck, you may literally have to pick it up the day before–but the office may be closed. Hopefully he can fly in, like, Thursday.
Also–call the base near you in California–maybe SAn Diego or something. And see if they have any options. Maybe you can get one from the military base or something. After all, military chaplains can do services

We’re hoping he’ll be able to get here on a Thursday or another day that’s earlier too. If absolutely nothing else, we’ll push the wedding to the afternoon from the morning. We can’t pick a date anyway until the Navy tells him in October when he’ll have leave.

I definitely have to say you are lucky you aren’t in Texas, there is a 3 day waiting period…
