Clark County Marriage License Bureau reopens under new requirements


LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Couples can once again get a marriage license with the opening of the Clark County Marriage License Bureau on Monday morning.

There was a line of people waiting for the 8 a.m. opening at the Regional Justice Center in downtown Las Vegas.

The office is reopening with some new procedures and requirements.

 “We have developed new procedures that adhere to social distancing guidelines and just recently acquired personal protective equipment including masks, gloves and no-touch thermometers. Taken together, these protective measures will limit the risk to our staff and the public.”

 In addition, some of the other changes the bureau is implementing for couples include the following:

  • Complete a marriage license application online before arriving at the Marriage License Bureau
  • Limit the number of people inside the office at a time
  • Require people to wear a face mask or other face covering in order to enter the office
  • Social distancing to keep couples away from others
  • Surfaces inside the office will be sanitized after each couple leaves
  • Temperature checks, no one with fever will be allowed inside
  • Couples must both present government-issued identification
  • Only credit card payments will be accepted.

The Marriage License Bureau will also be open to accept and file marriage certificates, notary bonds, and fictitious firm names.

The Marriage License Bureau will be open from 8 a.m. to midnight every day, including weekends and holidays, which were the regular hours before the office was temporarily closed on March 17 to limit the spread of the virus. For now, the County office will be the only one to reopen, the offices in Henderson, Laughlin and at the County Government Center will remain closed.
